This course offers an in-depth training in snowshoeing, with the goal of independently planning and practicing tours. Our base is on Schwarzwasserhütte at 1,620m altitude amidst a beautiful winter landscape with a large selection of peaks all around us.
Content: right walking technique, route planning based on maps, assessment of prevailing avalanche conditions and handling of the technical equipment. This includes training with the spill detector in a special training field at the hut and the search technique with shovel and probe. Mostly you will get trained during beautiful tours around the hut.
