As ORTOVOX is the headline sponsor of the HAT UK Tour, we also refer to this as the ORTOVOX Off Piste Awareness Tour. The Tour includes a series of live multimedia talks about how to have fun and be safe while riding off piste this season. There are two versions of the talk:
Ride Hard ! Ride Safe – The Essentials introduces you to the principles of how to stay safe and find the best snow when you go off piste. Our in-depth talks build on that 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
During the UK tour Henry delivers a live In Depth talk and Q&A on how avalanches are triggered and the human factor
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
Henry discusses 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?
