Would you like to learn or expand your knowledge in snow avalanches? I have prepared an ideal course for you that will take place in north Slovakia. You will learn everything you need to know how to proceed in case of an avalanche accident.

The goal of this weekend course is that you learn how to handle avalanche equipment and how to solve or prevent problems related to it. I will also teach you how to test the stability of the snow. By the end of the course you will master the basic rules of safe mountain skiing movement.

As for the itinerary of this weekend course in north Slovakia, we will meet on Friday afternoon for a brief introductory talk on types of snow and avalanches. The next day we will go for some cross-country skiing as well as carry out a practical training to test the stability of the snow. In the afternoon, I will give you a new class about decision and planning of a ski tour taking into account the terrain, the avalanche forecast and its risks.

Finally, on Sunday we will do a ski tour putting into practice our new theoretical knowledge and also doing a real rescue practice. At the end of this avalanche course in north Slovakia, each participant will receive a certificate.

Equipment needed

You must bring skins, skis, adjustable ski poles, backpack of 30-35 liters, avalanche gear (borrowed) headlight and spare batteries. Also remember to bring suitable clothes such as thermal clothing, jacket and snow pants, warm jacket, hat, normal and ski gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen, spare underwear. Finally, important for the course: a notepad and pen!

Mountain Guide

I was born in Poprad and I live, work and relax in the High Tatras. I have been climbing in this region for 15 years both in summer and winter.
Since 2001 I am a professional rescuer with a completed Bachelor education in Urgent Medical Care. Furthermore, I work in The Experts Mountain Rescue Service (in High Tatras) as an avalanche specialist.
In 2009, after passing the entrance examination for mountain guiding, I started the roundabout course. In April 2010, I became a mountain guide aspirant in the National Association of Mountain Guides of the Slovak Republic.
In 2011, during the final course in Chamonix - Mont Blanc (France) I successfully completed the course of mountain guide during four days of tests, under the strict supervision of Technical Commission NAHVSR instructors. Since then, I am a mountain guide with the IFMGA / UIAGM international license.
Thanks to this job (and hobby) I am pleased to expand the horizons of my clients and share with them my knowledge and experience as a mountain guide.
