avalanche awareness clinic avalanche awareness clinic

INTRODUCTION

This really is a life long investment and will equip you to be safe in mind as well as give you the skills to react to an avalanche. Based on the theory that using the kit is the last resort, this course will help you “think” how you can act to best avoid triggering avalanches and putting yourself in danger, in the first place.
 
This specific training course is designed to have a better understanding of the many risks presented in the mountain environment as well as learning the use of mountain safety equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe).
