6 Day-trip with avalanche course

Had such an incredible week learning to ski tour whilst on their avalanche course, I think it’s my new favourite sport. We were generally the only people wherever we went and had the most incredible fresh powder to ski down on, complete dream, plus I really feel I understand avalanches a lot better than I did!

Dagskurs i kameratredning i skred

Med kun teoretiske kurs i bagasjen så vi behovet for å praktisere både ny og tidligere kunnskap før årets alpetur.  Dagen ble tilpasset våre behov, og vi satt alle igjen med en «aha»-opplevelse over hvor mye lærdom et praksis kurs faktisk kan gi.

Skredkurs for damer

Kurset gav en god innføring i skredlære, ta trygge valg ute i fjellet, og ikke minst god praktisk erfaring! Følte meg rett og slett tryggere etter endt kurs. Wild Voss har kompetente og engasjert instruktører! De besitter mye kunnskap som de er gode til å formidle.
