Franske Alper. Maurienne dalen, Val Cenis

19 - 21.01 2018

Denne workshopen blir årets nyhet. Vår samarbeidsparter er Fred Buttard og hans fjellfører kollegaer i Dalen. Det gjenstår noe før den er spikret. Oppdatering kommer så snart alt er avklart.

Ski & Avalanche Workshop

Val Cenis, January 19th-21th 2018

On Friday and Saturday evening the conditions are discussed and the plans for the next day made.

The preparing of the tours are coached by local mountain guides (Fred Buttard and Victor Charon) and Björn Michaelsen (Ski and Avalanche Instructor, Alta, Norway). On Saturday and Sunday the groups are skiing on their own. The coaches are joining one group each day.

This workshop is not a classic avalanche safety course, it’s a terrain course, and the time we will spend sitting in the classroom will be only to talk about practical issues that have been either observed on the terrain or obtained by varied sources of informations. The more “theoretical” subjects will be discussed with practical examples while touring and skiing.

Since the course is international, the main language will be English.
