It can save your life and it is for free – the Safety First Avalanche Camps organized by Millhaus will teach you essentials like how to read snow reports, how to handle beacons or how to „read“ the backcountry.
The one day camps address riders starting from age 14 who want to learn more about safety on the mountains. You will spend the day with some theory and more backcountry action in which experienced mountain guides will tell you more about noticing warning signs and how you use beacon, shovel and probe.
Dates for this season´s Safety First Avalanche Camps:
05.02. – Spitzingsee/ GER
16.02. – Ifen/ Kleinwalsertal/ GER
Each camps is limited to 30 persons, so sign up as soon as possible. Just send an email with your name, date of birth and Telefone number to firstname.lastname@example.org.
