Backcountry Safety Camp


Pleasure comes alongside with danger and responsibility. The Backcountry Safety Camps should bring you the awareness of hazards in the Mountains, but also how to act and react in certain situations to minimise the risk for you and your companions. The focus within these camps lies on teaching you necessary backcountry skills, further strategies for risk management which should help you making the wright decision at the wright time. The Camp will be held in German, if needed in English as well.

We will show you different topics such as: 

  • A necessary checklist for tour planing and freeriding
  • Avalanche report and how to use it
  • Types of snow and avalanches
  • Wind signes
  • Snow layer investigation
  • Interpretation of external dangers and circumstances
  • How to work with tour planing tools

We also teach you on how to react in case something goes wrong and your companion(s) are in danger.
