A safety training for freeriders

Freeride is a sport practiced off-piste in all ski resorts. More and more known since these last years and in particular via international competitions such as the mythical Freeride World Tour, this sport is exclusively addressed to confirmed skiers, in search of strong sensations, in the great snowy spaces, untouched by any tracks. This type of skiing requires a perfect knowledge of safety measures in the natural mountain environment. There is no secret, a successful and safe off-piste outing requires a good preparation!

 

The main elements covered during the course :

  • Equipment, snow and avalanche
  • Information and tips for planning a ski touring or freeride trip
