Infos & Booking


As an AINEVA - ANENA trainer (Italian and French National Associations for the Study of Snow and Avalanches), I propose this training / improvement ski touring course entitled "Making ski touring track" and taking place in Italy, in the Aosta valley.

The program of this course consists of two days designed to learn and use risk management methods and to adapt them to the outing, the route and the track during your ski touring trips.

The final objective is to understand your analysis in the field and to enable you to give correct instructions so that all participants can apply them accurately. Indeed, the course aims to help ski touring enthusiasts who go out in groups of friends to decide what to do, how to do it, etc. on the basis of precise and objective methods and documents.

For the more beginners, I also offer throughout the winter the AINEVA/ANENA training course "Following ski touring track" which takes place in the Aosta valley.

You can also follow me during different trips for advanced skiers, to practice ski-mountaineering in the Mont-Blanc massif or ski touring around the Benevolo refuge in the Aosta valley.

Checking of the personal equipment of each trainee and beginning of the course with a theoretical session on snow and avalanches (expected to last about an hour and a half).
