This course is an essential introduction for anyone who is keen to go into an off piste environment. You will find a new respect for the mountain and these foundations will help you to continue to stay safe whilst having fun in the mountains.

The course starts inside where we look at factors that influence the likelihood of an avalanche and the consequences. On the mountain we look at the practical aspects of how to avoid avalanches and use of the emergency equipment in the worst case scenario. Make sure you dress warmly for this course.
