Workshop – “Decisions in Avalanche Terrain”
January 26, 2018 @ 18:00 - January 28, 2018 @ 16:00
Welcome to the Northern Lyngen alps and Ascent Descents “Learning from the Legends” weekend 2018. A memorable event and course with avalanche terrain management and inspiration in focus. Two evenings with lectures, slide shows and two days on the mountain with certified Mountain Guides and special guests. It´s one of our few “open” events during the winter so it´s a good opportunity to meet other skiers from the area and future ski buddies.
This weekend we focus on “the skiers” approach in avalanche terrain but will also run a detailed search and rescue exercise and explain avalanches and why they occur.
Instructors at this point:
Ptor Spricenieks – World wide ski mountaineer
Ptor is a passionate ski mountaineer and even if not fully certified IFMGA guide he´s been guiding in the back country in remote places of the planet since 17 years. He has also worked with avalanche control in Gulmarg. He will share his thoughts on the mountain as well as in the evenings. Ptor Lives in La Grave and it´s a great honor to have him listed for this event. If you live in the Tromsø area this is a chance not to be missed… Please check out the Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJq57RonNOE
