To ski safe you need to know the safety procedures.

Join us to get educated on the safety aspects of skiing off-piste.

If you are a regular skier you will know the dangers of skiing off-piste. Whilst every precaution is made by the authorities to blow snow to avoid avalanche risks, you are invited by esf to learn more about your own safety. 

This is why we are offering you a mini training course to give you access to everything that skiers should know before they go off-piste.

Learn the meaning and practices used including, DVA, ARVA, BERA, Air-bag and other technologies. Discover how to use this equipment and all safety elements for the practice of ski touring and off-piste skiing.

Knowing what to do in those unsuspected circumstances of an avalanche or accident could save lives!
