NO Pressure POLICY

The Workshop is all about fun and learning. Creating an intimidating environment or getting people to ski things they don't feel comfortable with works against those goals. If somebody has a bad feeling, we'll back off. Proper group travel in the mountains is a collaborative effort, where all voices are heard.

Prepare for your trip

Knowledge:

The more you know before you show up, the more you will get out of the course. The book, Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain, is a very practical guide to avalanche safety, with just enough theory and loads of practical information. Read it.

Here on Amazon.de

Fitness:

This will be 6 days of skiing in a row, your enjoyment will be somewhat connected to fitness level. 3-4 days of sport a week are recommended a month leading up to the trip. This isn't a gung-ho, bootcamp style trip, we will have the most fun that fits within the groups' fitness. Just making a point that being in better shape makes skiing more fun.
