  • Introduction to using the specific equipment needed for the upward section (skis, bindings, skins);
  • Introduction to using the safety equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe) with a certified ANENA instructor;
  • Instruction in establishing a safe and suitable route (terrain analysis, weather and nivology);
  • Introduction to how to react in the case of an accident (group safety procedure, sounding the alert);
  • The instructors also offer an adventure package where the aim is to apply your knowledge to head off for an adventure on the beautiful, yet suitable, routes.

The itineraries will take place over a half-day or a week, from the resort but also in other massifs using the school’s minibus. From €560 for 5 days.
