AVVY/OFF PISTE TRAINING
CAMP DURATION - 7 DAYS
NOW OPEN TO PARENTS!
This camp has been a huge hit during the past couple of years. This is all about off-piste and mountain safety. We team up with our friends at GZ Backcountry Adventures and tour the mountains learning the dos and don'ts of the glorious backcountry.
Who doesn’t love a powder day? Pow days don’t come often enough, therefore the times we get to ski one are pretty rare, (unless we live in Japan!) … we head up and ski as many runs as possible. Sometimes those runs aren’t safe and sometimes avalanches occur. After this camp, your kids (and maybe you!) will have extensive knowledge about the key elements that will keep you alive. For example, you’ll be taught the 5 red flags, gradients of slips, why they occur, when they occur, practise shovelling, probing and transceiver training.
We will begin the camp with a days free-skiing to get our ski legs after the Christmas period. Then we will join GZ and attend either Zinal, Grimentz or Crans Montana depending on the weather. 4 days will cover all the necessities. We will aim to complete 4 tours.
Touring equipment can be rented the morning of the first day.
Camp spaces are very limited.
