The adventure of the off-piste is what we all dream of but avalanche is our worst nightmare.

Avalanche Academy now offer safety training in Chamonix, with private courses also available in Verbier, Morzine, Saint Gervais, the Grand Massif, Courmayeur, La Thuile and other venues on request.

Dedicated to keeping you safer in the off-piste, we will be running our Avalanche Awareness lectures in Chamonix again this winter. The fantastic Bighorn Bar and Bistro will be our venue again, as per last season.
