Basic avalanche course in Storulvån

Are you curious about the wonderful world of Alpine ski touring? Or do you ever wonder what lies behind the backcountry gates of your local ski resort? Then this two-day course is for you, with Sweden's most easily accessible and popular ski touring area as your training ground.

The Basic avalanche course is a course for those who master the art of off-piste skiing and want to learn more about avalanche safety. The course is led by a certified SVELAV (Swedish national education standard) instructor, and you will learn to identify avalanche terrain, safe routes, companion rescue and how to gather and interpret information about weather and the stability of the snow. 

By the way, equipment such as randonnée skis or split-boards with skins, transceiver, probe, and shovel can be rented at the mountain station.
