Ski areas are closed, but skiing is still allowed... and training is highly recommended!
Join us for a full day of learning about winter mountain safety. The mountains in the winter become an incredible playground, magnificent but also very complex to understand how to safely travel through the terrain. The layers of snow, the wind, the cold, and picking an itinerary based on the ever changing mountain conditions. The Guides at the Bureau of La Grave are offering to take you out into the terrain to learn about what it takes to safely explore the amazing winter mountain environment. We will cover how to properly use your avalanche rescue equipment and how to perform avalanche rescue. As well we will cover how to prepare for your outing: reading the weather and avalanche bulletin, choosing an appropriate itinerary based on the conditions, what to carry in your backpack. A small ski tour from one of the surrounding villages of La Grave or from the Col du Lautaret will be the perfect terrain to learn these skills.
