« Learning to minimise the risks, knowing how to use safety equipment, knowing the mountain and enjoying it in a responsible way »

I work with ANENA (The National Association for the Study of Snow and Avalanches) to promote awareness and to train those who enjoy winter mountain sports in the risks of the mountain in winter. This means I can enable students to acquire skills in the use of safety equipment, organising a rescue on your own, knowledge of the area, weather and snow phenomena as well as the responsible behaviour everyone should adopt in order to reduce the risk of accidents occurring.
