Freeriding – Safety first!

Apart from having fun skiing off the pists, we never forget the dangers that may occur in our beautiful nature. Maximum safety is therefore the prime principle in our freeride camps.

Factor of safety 1:

Qualified mountain and ski guides lead your day. According to weather forecast and  avalanche warning they choose the right slopes and rides. Maximum group size: 8 people

Factor of safety 2:

Every participant has to have their own personal safety equipment (helmet, avalanche transceiver, shovel, avalanche probe) and optains a thourough introduction  in using the equipment.

Factor of safety 3:

The latest BCA-system has enormously improved the safety. Airbags help to stay on the surface of an avalanche or help to avoid a deep burial in snow masses in case of an avalanche. The chance of surviving an avalanche raises up to more than 90%.
