Ortovox Safety Academy
The Ortovox Safety Academy offers professional off-piste training designed for snowshoe hikers and ski tourers. The course provides participants with the knowledge and essential skills in backcountry safety and features guided tours.
On the weekends of 5th and 6th January (snowshoe hikers) and 9th and 10th March (ski tourers), participants will learn the basics for more safety in deep snow. Adequate preparation, the right equipment and behaviour and the ability to assess potential dangers are essential skills for a safe backcountry experience.
