I’ve been with guides who have shown me the principles of how to use a transceiver and probe and avalanche safety techniques.
Snow conditions are often changeable, avalanche warnings are common and the mountains always need our respect.
With January just around the corner and the snow base building, here’s a summary of what the Government recommend with regards your ski safety.
As we venture further and further away from the piste, we have acquired a Thule 25l Upslope ski rucksack. We’ve not had this pack very long and it hasn’t really been tested ‘in the field’ yet. We’ve been skiing at the Hintertux and Snowshoeing at Penken, so thought we’d share our initial impressions with you.
