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 hour and a half ‘Essentials’ talk explains how to HAT checklist 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?
