DAY

Difference in altitude: from 400m to 2000m, depending on your request
Ascent time: depending on your request
Meeting point: meeting to be defined with the Guide, variable depending on request

The daily program includes a meeting point to carry out a brief group briefing dedicated to the control of individual ski mountaineering material. At the end of the briefing the safety kit will be delivered (backpack with ARTVA, shovel and probe) for the participants without such equipment.

After a short transfer by car to the chosen area, the group will receive some preliminary information on the chosen itinerary from the Guide. Each participant will receive basic information on using the security kit. Once the tour preparation phase is complete, the group will begin the excursion to the destination.

During the excursion the Guide will provide information on the basic techniques of ski mountaineering. Easy practical tests will be offered (slope progression, inversions, use of knives). Along the route one or more breaks will be made depending on the needs of the participants: it is strongly recommended to bring a thermos containing hot tea, energy bars or snacks (dried fruit, chocolate).

At the end of the tour, there is a quick refreshment (snacks) before returning to the machines in the late afternoon.
