Our HAT off-piste article is a short introduction to how to stay safe and have more fun off piste. We have noticed that when people discover the off-piste they love their skiing even more. But for many skiers the off-piste can seem like a scary and inaccessible place
The article demystifies the knowledge held by off-piste guides and instructors. It is no substitute for real experience and training by professionals. But it is a great place to start your voyage of discovery. Armed with this knowledge you will be intelligently inquisitive about avalanche danger. You will begin to know what you don’t know and what you need to learn.
Just like our introduction talk, the article is divided into 4 sections
- Introduction to off-piste and avalanches
- Where you go and when
- How you go down or up
- Being well prepared
