This one day introduction is for keen confident skiers looking to make themselves safer skiing off piste. We aim to introduce you to transceiver search techniques, how avalanches are caused and how to spot the signs

and safe travel techniques in avalanche terrain.

The day will start at our base on Alvie estate near Aviemore and move outside probably to the ski area and just outside its boundary.
