    This Avalanche Course in Narvik, Norway, is the best way to remain safe during your adventures. It’s a basic 3-hour course that could prove to be very important for your safety!

    This Avalanche Course is an opportunity to learn about avalanche theory. It will also provide good practice. We’ll learn how to use transceivers to look for buried people.

    I’ll start by teaching you the different kinds of avalanches: why they happen and how can you avoid risky situations. Also, I’ll explain act when faced with dangerous conditions. In addition, we’ll talk about properly judging avalanche danger and how to move if you’re stuck in one.

    After 1,5 hours of theory, I’ll walk you through a professional evaluation of the gear you should absolutely use. Then, we’ll step outside and practice how to use a beacon. Everyone will get the chance to test it personally and search for a receiver. This way you’ll leave the Avalanche Course with the knowledge to judge and act in dangerous situations!

    So contact me to learn more about this course! And if you are ready for an adventure in this area, you can also check out some of my trips: Narvik ski touring week and Heliskiing in Narvik.

    About the Guide

     
     

    I have climbed and skied all my life but started working as a guide in 2009. I became a fully-qualified IFMGA guide in 2012. I'm based in Herjangen (just north of Narvik in Ofoten, Nordland, Norway) and have been skiing in this area for over two decades. I guide all over the world but prefer to be home in Trollviken! My goal is to share my knowledge and my love for these mountains to increase your skills. I used to be an investment banking executive but I'm a lot better now!
