Training safety "Do your ski track"

The winter mountain is a medium of random danger of avalanche. Knowing the snow is a long learning. The training of the Annecy Guides Office will give you elements to progress in your knowledge of the snow and the choice of the route to help you know how far you can go while remaining safe. The limit of one is not that of the other, it depends on your personal experience and your psychology. The important thing is to know where you may have to change directions or turn around.
