Zoom Essentials talk 7th 8th December 2021
The Essentials Talk helps you answer the critical question “Is it safe out there?” We explain that there is no simple yes or no answer. The right answer is it depends on you. It depends on
- Where you go and when,
- How you go down or up and
- How well prepared you are.
The Essentials talk will be delivered online using Zoom Webinar. It is split into 2 parts at 1800 on 7th and 8th December 2021. Each session will last an hour and maybe a bit longer to allow for questions.
You will be able to obtain your ticket from the My Account tab, it will also be emailed to you.
The hour and a half ‘Essentials’ talk explains how the ACCIDENT REDUCTION FRAMEWORK works and how you can use this to make going off piste just as safe as driving to the resort.
The talk is full of exciting images, videos and stories of accidents, great skiing along with close calls with danger. In this talk, we will deliver a risk management formula that will help you to see how skiing off-piste can be no more dangerous than the activities that you engage in each day.
The Essentials talk is not just for people new to off piste
We’re going to 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 when there are clear clues indicating danger, people who ‘should know better (have the basic training needed in order to recognise these clues), still get caught out in avalanches?
