awareness


Exploring high mountain areas, and in particular in the mountains of La Grave, requires specific knowledge and respect. Education and training increases the awareness of skiing more safely in an off piste environment.

We recommend this extensive course which covers the variety of dangers present in skiing in a high mountain environment.
Among the topics:
- Snow and avalanche:
How to evaluate and deal with snow covered slopes according to their orientation, the prevailing winds and latest snowfalls.
- Steep slopes:
How to deal with couloirs and steep slopes according to the snow conditions. For example the use of ropes, ice axes and crampons on hard snow.
- Glacier travel:
How to proceed on glaciers. Crevasse rescue techniques and hoisting techniques.
