Bild zu 19-0017-01: Basic Off Piste Training

The following is a typical schedule, with the guide fine tuning the plan according to the prevailing weather conditions and the experience of the group.

Day 1: Welcome at Lizum1600 (1600m). The guide helps to organise rental ski equipment, distributes the 5 day-ski pass and the booked avalanche equipment. After dinner: Preview of the activities of the week.

Day 2: The day starts with an analysis of the group´s skiing techniques on a red route. The guide indicates the necessary skills and techniques to make the transition from piste to off piste. Safety aspects (introduction to the use of transceiver, shovel, probe). Planning the next day.

If the guide considers that the skiing standards of a participant are below standard and would hinder the progress of the whole group, he/she will be asked to leave the course and ski on piste using the facilities of the resort.

Day 3 to 5: Intensive off piste instruction in various snow conditions, learning about terrain, snow and standard operating procedures (SOPs), practice of rescue procedures and first aid. Planning the next day.

Day 6: Intensive off piste instruction or introduction to ski touring. After dinner: reflections on the week.

Day 7: Farewell after breakfast

In the evenings, there will be lectures on equipment and safety issues: Avalanche Awareness based on the AV Strategy ‘’Stop or Go©’’ and Alpine Weather.

The area is covered by AV-Map >31/5 Innsbruck-Umgebung, Skitouren<, available from, or from the AAC(UK) Office.
