Avalanche Search and Rescue Training

An Avalanche Safety course is like a First Aid course. It is extremely important information that could save someone's life but you hope you never have to use it...

Understanding the importance of 'Companion Rescue' techniques is absolutely crucial when venturing off-piste. It is your best chance of saving a life.

You may own a transceiver, shovel and probe, but knowing how to use them is essential.

We will train you on how to follow flux lines, conduct a three-stage search and how to use a probe and shovel effectively.
