With a lot of speed only following the natural curves, leaving your line flowing in the powder. Ski down safely, controlled and quickly with wide skis at different gradients and correctly assess the situation. Interpret the avalanche situation report correctly and know the basics of searching for avalanche victims. If that's your goal and you want to improve your existing deep snow technique, you've come to the right place. Depending on the current snow conditions, the most important points of freeriding are trained by professionals (mountain and ski guides).
Depending on the snow conditions, we meet at a ski area near Garmisch-Partenkirchen, usually the Eibsee cable car to the Zugspitze. After the equipment check, we take the cable car to the ski area and start the day with a short run-in. With targeted exercises and taking into account the avalanche situation, we hone our off-piste skills. At noon we stop in one of the cozy ski huts. Meanwhile, the important points of the avalanche situation report are explained. After strengthening we want to deepen what we have learned in different terrain and in changing snow conditions. All ascents are carried out with the existing mountain railways and ski lifts.
Today we want to improve our technique in steep, demanding terrain. Small jumps, dropping over edges and cornices require our full concentration. The most important points in the terminology of avalanche victims are trained on a small avalanche field. The different search phases are carried out with your own avalanche transceiver, here everyone is looked after individually by the mountain and ski guide. At noon we go to one of the ski huts for lunch.
