ÖAV Avalanche Update: Dates 2018/19

Lecture series on accident prevention and rescue technology

by PowderGuide 11/23/2018
The Austrian Alpine Association is once again offering evening lectures to get in the mood for the ski season, where winter sports enthusiasts can update their avalanche knowledge.

Between the end of November and the end of January, a total of 21 lecture evenings are on the program, in which Michael Larcher - mountain guide, court expert and head of the ÖAV's mountain sports department - explains how and what you can learn from avalanche accidents.

In addition to equipment issues (what belongs in the backpack?), the two-hour lectures will also cover tour planning and decision-making on site. In addition, selected avalanche accidents from the past season are analyzed in order to sharpen the focus on various hazard patterns.

"Around 20 ski tourers die in avalanches every year. Even if not all avalanches are predictable and accidents can happen without human error, we also observe recurring accident patterns that could clearly be avoided", says Larcher.

The events are aimed at active winter sports enthusiasts of all kinds and convey the current state of practical avalanche awareness and rescue techniques from the perspective of the Alpine Club.

You do not need to register in advance for the lectures and admission is free. However, voluntary donations are welcome.
