by PowderGuide • 12/24/2018
We are delighted to be able to offer a place at the training session, the next level camp and the end-of-season chillout again this year together with risk'n'fun. risk'n'fun is the training program of the Alpine Club Youth. In addition to learning technical skills, the freeride camps also focus on "human" topics such as group dynamics and personal risk perception.

Update: Application deadline extended until 11.1.2019!

Level 1: The training session

At the Level 1 camp, participants spend four days in the backcountry together with the guides and risk'n'fun coaches. The aim of the training is that after participating in the training session, you will be able to make your own decisions, argue and find lines and downhill variants that suit the respective conditions. A personal "freeride strategy" will be developed, building on the pillars of risk'n'fun: perceive - assess - decide.

Date Level 1 - training session: 30.01. - 03.02.2019

Level 2

From Level 2 onwards, you'll be heading higher and into the backcountry with splitboards and touring skis. The Next Level Camp builds on the content of the training session and focuses on independent planning of activities on the mountain. In addition to the further development of the "freeride strategy" from the Level 1 camp, the following topics are added: map skills, orientation, avalanche awareness (in-depth), tour planning.

Temin Level 2 - Next Level: 20.02.-24.2.2019 Kitzsteinhorn


The traditional chillout in Fieberbrunn is the risk'n'fun end to the season, where everyone looks back on the season during a weekend together. In addition to joint activities on the mountain, the program includes films, lectures and discussions. And of course there will also be a party!

Date Chillout: 15.3.-17.3. Fieberbrunn
