The Essentials (Manchester) Ortovox Avalanche Awareness Tour
Wed 19 October 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
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 Essentials Talk. This talk helps you answer the critical question “Is it safe out there?” We explain that there is no simple yes or no answer. The right answer is it depends on you. It depends on
- Where you go and when,
- How you go down or up and
- How well prepared you are.
The hour and a half ‘Essentials’ talk is full of exciting images, videos and stories of accidents, great skiing along with close calls with danger. In this talk, Henry will 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.
It is worth watching every year. People often tell us that they get more out of this talk each time they attend or watch it online.
