In Depth (Mendip) Ortovox Avalanche Awareness Tour
Tue 1 November 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
The Ortovox Avalanche Awareness Tour 2016 is a series of live multimedia talks about how to have fun and be safe while riding off piste this season.
There are two versions of the talk:
- The Essentials – a must see talk, full of ‘essential’ information for all off-piste skiers, no matter how experienced you are.
- In depth – Understand exactly how avalanches are triggered (for those who have already seen the Essentials Talk).
This event is the In Depth talk. This talk builds on what we teach in The Essentials. We go in depth to help you answer the critical question “Is it safe out there?” This talk focuses on two subjects
- Exactly how and why avalanches are triggered
- How you can use this knowledge by understanding the impact of the Human Factor
The talk is full of exciting images, videos and stories of accidents, great skiing along with close calls with danger. We look at Alain Duclos and Francois Louchet's theory of how avalanches triggered. You can read their orginal article on this by clicking here
In this talk, Henry will show you how to use this and deliver a risk management formula that will help you to see how skiing off-piste can be no more dangerous than the activities that you engage in each day.
