Basic course


Mastering the avalanche search device and the assessment method "3x3".

Introduction to the basic knowledge of avalanche prevention. The course is based on the "Warning avalanches" leaflet and is primarily for freeriders and ski tourers and those who want to become one.

The course includes theoretical and practical topics. Much emphasis is placed on the application in the field (3x3, pattern recognition, single slope assessment, elementary safety measures, handling of the avalanche transceiver set, accident prevention and rescue).
The course can be attended as a one-day intensive course, or as a two-day course.
In the one-day course, the contents are less in-depth, no repetitions and less practice time is included.
In the two-day course, there is more in-depth planning, an applied practice session on the second day, and much more time for practice and deepening of the topics. In addition, there are many practical tips and information on touring or freeride descents on the concrete example.
