Avalanche Progression

Avalanche Progression

If you have already done a Foundation course or have previous experience of Avalanche Awareness training then this course will take you to the next level. Building on the skills you already have, you will become a safer off-piste skier and a more effective rescuer. We will start with the most important process in avoiding avalanches - by planning your day on the mountain. We will cross reference off-piste itineraries with a map, avalanche forecast and the weather forecast. This simple process is the most effective way of avoiding avalanches, but is seldom practised by off-piste enthusiasts. Understanding snow science, avalanche prediction, and multiple burial scenarios will give you the freedom to explore the whole mountain. The course is run on the mountain, using skis or snowboards to travel.
