Learn the fundamentals of avalanche training on a 2-day course in the stunning town of Zermatt. And gain skills and confidence to explore the mountainside.

Free-riding, extreme skiing and off-piste skiing are all becoming more popular year by year as better gear has improved the technical ability to tackle the mountainside. This in addition to more efficient transportation has resulted in more skiers and snowboarders taking wilder adventures.

In able to fully master the off-piste deep snow, it is vital for a knowledge of avalanches in order to ride the slopes safely. Yet most off-piste skiers and free-riders are not from mountaineering backgrounds and generally lack a large amount of mountaineering skills. This is the hole that this course will fill in.

This 2-day course will cover all the necessary basics including how to plan tours and descents, how to judge the dangers of avalanches and how to deal with them, and how to take correct decisions when under pressure, as well as in critical situations. In addition, learn how to move on glaciers and what to do when unexpected events occur.

My approach is to emphasis practical work outdoors, rather than spending time talking about big theories.

In order to be able to enter the course, potential participants are required to have experience in skiing in unprepared terrain, as well as having basic mountaineering skills.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on this 2-day course that covers avalanche training, set in the stunning landscape around the Swiss town of Zermatt.
