Learn everything you need to know about prevention and equipment with this 2-day avalanche course in the High Tatras with IFMGA-certified Tomas.

Not specified


2 Days

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr


Mountains offer not only joys but also many dangers. During this 2-day avalanche course in the High Tatras, you'll learn everything you need to know to stay safe in the mountains!

If you are a freerider, ski tourer or mountaineer, you have to know how to assess avalanche risk. Knowing how to operate avalanche equipment is also a necessity. I'll also teach you about snow and weather conditions so that you can evaluate the risks yourself when you are out in the mountains without a mountain guide.

You'll also learn how to operate an avalanche kit (beacon, probe and shovel) and we'll practice searching for buried victims.

A good physical condition is a requirement for this course as we will spend from 6 to 8 hours on our skis. However, it is a beginner's course and no technical skills are necessary.

Depending on snow conditions, this course can be carried out between January and April. Contact me and we'll set a date for this avalanche course in the High Tatras! Get a group together and take advantage of these very informative 2 days.

Also, check out my 2-day ski touring course in the Ore Mountains. Apart from doing some basic avalanche training, we'll cover ski touring basics .

About the guide

I'm an IFMGA-certified mountain guide currently based in the Elbe Valley, Czech Republic. I've skied since a very young age but climbing is my true passion. I was in climbing representation and have climbed many big walls in the Alps, the US and Greenland.To me, mountain guiding is a unique profession: it allows me to spend my days doing what I like and to share with others the beauty I find in in the mountains.

The guide was nice. We went upto Studel hut. Next day the weather was very bad and hence we could not proceed further. We had no time to extend our day further. Never mind. We shall think of it again later. Tanks and regards.
