Safety First Avalanche Camps with the ratiopharm snowboard team.
After the big success of last year’s camps, the gratis avalanche trainings will be offered again this winter. The patrons of the events are Christoph Weber and his team colleagues from the ratiopharm snowboard team.
The one-day camps are supported by the Swiss snowboard clothing company Zimtstern, the Californian label Oakley and the avalanche search equipment producer PIEPS, who will provide the newest equipment as well as experienced mountain guides for the participants.
The program is filled with practical exercises like the accurate reading of the avalanche status report, the recognition of danger signals and the efficient use of avalanche transceivers, probes and shovels.
Every snowboarder and skier older than 14 years can take part in the camp.
