At all our programmes, we are able to offer an instructional session on avalanche awareness. Although our programmes always take place on or at the side of marked runs, we believe that all skiers and snowboarders should appreciate the dangers of avalanches. With practical, simulated, sessions using probes and beacons to search for avalanche victims through to the discovery of snow layering in a controlled area, this fun, yet highly informative, activity can be enjoyed by all ages.
