The main objective of the courses offered is to give the participant an in-depth knowledge of snow structure, the processes of change within it, and through field experience, develop recognition of snowpack stability and confidence in ascertaining potential avalanche hazard.
The courses are formatted to an internationally recognised standard and we have worked with the Canadian Avalanche Association in it’s development and adaptation to the European environment.
The courses have been a great success over the last few years and all those that have remarked on their value.
Forthcoming Winter Venues
15th – 19th January 2018
(5 day Course)
The course will be held in La Grave, a name recognised as being one of the premier off piste skiing areas in Europe. The skiing area is uniquely devoted to off piste skiing.
La Grave provides us with a variety of accessible areas that will not have been groomed or skied, so offering good terrain locations for study and travel.
