Is there anything more beautiful than the peace and solitude of untouched deep snow? But unfortunately, deep snow is always accompanied by the danger of avalanches. In such situations every second counts and a functioning rescue chain as well as the correct handling of probe, shovel and avalanche transceiver can save lives. It is therefore all the more important to be prepared for emergencies and to regularly refresh your knowledge.


Our avalanche course pursues this goal and is aimed at both beginners and those who want to refresh their knowledge. But don't worry - we will not only focus on theory, but also go on a ski tour, so of course the enjoyment will not be neglected.
