In the morning we will meet at Vogel resort where we have set up Pieps Art Station (multi-burial simulation polygon), a great tool for beacon training. The first hour and a half we will learn theory (slideshow indoor) about planning, snow, equipment, terrain reading, rescue protocols, getting to know the equipment. The rest of the day will be in the snow classroom (outside) learning about snow, stability tests, how to organize rescues, training on Pieps ART station. The practical part outside will be based on individual and team work.
Always remember that snow is constantly changing and can surprise even the most experienced mountaineers and skiers. Take at least one day every season to renew your knowledge of snow safety with your friends or on an organized workshop!
