Designed for the backcountry / randonee skier, climbers and snowmobilers, this is a half day activity workshop on the use on the main tools of buddy rescue in case of an avalanche; the transceiver, shovel and probe. We will assess avalanche conditions and the avalanche forecast for the area, spend time looking at snowpack and how that may influence the decision on the safe routes of travel, practice transceiver use, search patterns, how to use an avalanche probe, casualty extraction and incident management. The day will include a CPR refresher using mannequins for hands-on practice.

This can be combined with the Emergency Snow Shelters session for a full day cost of €350*

You can rent Transceiver, Shovel & Probe from us if you do not have your own

This is a special treat, and a great way to finish off a holiday. We collect you before sunset to drive up into the mountains for an easy snowshoe walk to experience the mountain alpenglow, and then in the gathering dusk use headtorches to experience snowshoeing at night.

 

After the 20th January 2021 we can also head to a refuge for a traditional Savoyard meal and an evening of fun, laughter and songs.
