We would argue that it is a bit impolite to ski off-piste with friends, carry all the safety equipment, but have no training in how to use it.
If you are wearing an avalanche transceiver, then that is a good start. If you are caught, your friends will be able to find you which is great. But you should be able to return the favour if they suffer an accident.
In this session, you will learn how to be well prepared and use your avalanche safety equipment. This concentrates on the role of the avalanche transceiver plus the shovel and probe. By the end of the training you will be able to recover a victim in around 5 minutes. You will also understand about the best way to use a probe and to dig the victim out.
Each event runs from 11.00 to 14.00
If you go out off-piste in a group and you have not had this training (or equivalent), you are increasing the risks for your friends that they may not be recovered within the 15 minute period in which the buried victim remains alive and breathing.
In this 1 minute video, Henry explains why we should have the training. And why we should refresh our training to be sure we are on top of it.
