Description

From an introduction to ski touring techniques to the discovery of hidden spots, we will spend a day skiing between larch trees and wide open spaces for maximum pleasure. Adaptation to the level of each person is of course essential to guarantee this pleasure.

We will (re)see the use of the famous triptych transceiver (detector of victims of avalanches), shovel and probe necessary to this activity in order to know all the subtleties and thus to allow all the learning of the safety in snowy environment.

This day will take place in the heart of the Hautes-Alpes, potentially in the south of the Écrins massif, but the exact location will be determined according to the weather and snow conditions.
