Description

Crevasses are a big part of mountaineering. They are present in most peaks and glaciers. As a result, it is important to know how to deal with them safely. It is also important to know how to conduct a proper rescue in case of an accident involving a crevasse. That is why I am offering this 2 hour evening course at the Sihlhölzli outdoor sporting complex in Zurich.

Throughout this brief, but thorough course, you will learn how to properly pull a person out of a crevasse with a double pulley. By the end of the course, my goal is that you will be able to enjoy mountaineering on a glacier independently, knowing you can perform basic rescue techniques.

The Sihlhölzli sporting complex offers a great environment for this evening crevasse rescue course, which takes place at 6:30 pm. Furthermore, the complex’s location is great because it is positioned in the city of Zurich. A great Swiss city full of amazing highlights, Zurich is also located near the Alps. Thus giving you the chance to put what you’ve learned in this course into practice in one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world.

Learning proper crevasse rescue techniques is crucial for fun, safe and successful mountaineering on peaks and glaciers. If you would like to learn those techniques, just send me a request. I would be happy to guide you.

I also offer another 2 hour evening course at the Sihlhölzli sporting complex that focuses on properly roping on a glacier.

This was a great trip and Explore Share made finding the right trip super easy. Our guide was personable, extremely knowledgeable, and experienced and willing to teach us the skills we would have needed to climb the Matterhorn. Unfortunatly, the conditions were not right to climb so our guide recemmended another trip which was still a great experience and lots of fun.

Very user friendly platform with timely responses from Explore Share representatives. The trip itself with Tom from Alps Adventures was awesome and ensure that we had an experience that was 100% what we wanted. Recommend both the platform and the guide. Thanks to all for arranging and delivering so well.

I had am amazing time during the 1-day off-piste training course at Hoch-Ybrig. Urs, our main mountain guide, was very helpful in answering my queries before the course, and Lupe from explore-share was helpful in selecting the course. We had 3 groups under Urs, Mario and Patrick, and I was in the group with Patrick. He gave us a lot of nice tips and individualized video analysis. He made a special effort to convey everything in English, since I don't know German. All the participants were very helpful and friendly too! The course is good value for money as skis are included for the weekend in the course price.
