SAAC Basic Camp

28.02.2015 - 01.03.2015


Certified mountain and ski guides at the SAAC Basic Avalanche Camp will be advising on alpine dangers, risk management, equipment and the correct behaviour  when going off piste.


The Camp begins on the first day with a three hour theory lesson in a relaxed presentation using power point and video. On the second day, small groups will head off back country, where theory will be put into practise, using risk assessment, proper rules of conduct and a practise emergency run for victim search and location. Of course, the fun factor won't be neglected, so look forward to plenty of powder runs. All skiers and boarders are welcome to take part, provided they are aged 14 or over.

Participation as well as the rental of avalanche rescue gear are free of charge!
