SAFETY COURSE ON SNOW AND AVALANCHES
The mountain is a wild natural environment, traversing it outside the secure ski area requires knowledge and suitable equipment to progress safely.
Whether you descend a few meters from marked slopes or ski tour away from it all, the Mountain is not without dangers.
In order to complete my initial training and to validate my experience in ski touring, I obtained a training approval from ANENA (National Association for the Study of Snow and Avalanches)
This allows me to offer different internship options:
Half-day introductory or advanced training module in the rescue of avalanche victims:
I offer this course to people looking to acquire practical knowledge about avalanches by focusing on the effecient use of minimum safety equipment for off-piste or ski touring:
DVA: Avalanche Victim Detector.
Probe: Used to locate the victim under the snow.
Shovel: Allows to release the Victim.
You will learn what avalanches are, where you can meet them and what their triggering mechanisms are through a practical introduction to snow science.
I will explain how to read a BERA (Avalanche Risk Assessment Bulletin).
We will practice handling safety equipment in order to organize effecient rescue in the event of the burial of one or two avalanche victims.
