Safety Information for our programmes and activities

DSCN8635

Safety in the mountains has to be the highest priority for everyone wanting to discover this beautiful world and its activities. Safety is our priority when we guide you.

Winter’s beauty brings with it some added risks but these can be reduced knowing THE HISTORY of each season, each weather change and every snowfall , observing the snow cristals and snow formations, the wind, the temperature and the weather.

Knowing the mountains in winter is the only possibility to reduce the risk!

We like to consider and share with you all the information we have with regards to safety. By observing the snow, which can include digging a snow profile, we can decide together ski runs with the best condition and least risk.

All members of the group must have the correct safety gear. Avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe are compulsory and we can provide them if you do not have your own. We will give to you the basic information how to use the equipment and we will try to find time during the day to practice. If requested and necessary we can also provide crampons, harness, ice-axe, for example if we have to ski on the glacier.

Ski Safety Gear

We suggest using an ABS backpack and we have some available to rent and we also recommend always to use your helmet!
