If you have gained any experience in ski touring, but you would like to extend your skills related to secure moving in the mountains in the winter season we invite you to our trainings in avalanche skills. The experienced instructors, such as the Tatra Mountains guides and rescuers of TOPR (Tatra Volunteer Search and Rescue) will teach you how to handle the Avalanche Safety Gear, assume a risk of avalanche flow and select an appropriate trail of the trip in order to reduce the above mentioned risk. Just join us and see how beautiful are the Tatra Mountains in the winter.
The programme includes:
- basic information about avalanches and a code of behaviour applicable in the mountains
