Come to see In depth Talk at La Galise Hotel in Val d’Isere. The talk lasts 90 minutes with a short time for questions.
Our in-depth talks build on the Essentials talk and go in depth into four subjects.
- How avalanches are triggered
- Where you go and when
- How you go down or up
- The Human Factor
Meet in the Alex bar (below the Galise) between 1715 and 1745 for a drink. The talk starts at 1745 in the hotel. We will finish at 1915. We will be in the Alex Bar for a conversation afterwards as well.
How avalanches are triggered
We discuss the latest thinking and theory on how and why avalanches are triggered. This talk uses graphics and video to show you how avalanches can be triggered by one person weighing just 60Kg. Understanding why this happens will help you reduce your risk of being caught.
The Human Factor
We discuss the latest lessons from recent research on the Human Factor and how it applies to decision making and risk taking in the backcountry and off-piste skiing. Why it is that people who should know better, still get caught out in avalanches?
