Mountain Safety and Rescue

Avalanche Search Practice

La Chamoniarde provides 5 Transceiver Training Parks in the Chamonix valley. Their access is free and allows mountain enthusiasts to practise.

Avalanche rescue


Fast and efficient victim search requires a lot of practice, to palliate stress caused by an emergency situation. Practice is then made possible thanks to the 5 DVA parks located in the valley ski areas.

Access to these areas is free and open to everyone (mountain sport enthusiasts and professionals).

WARNING : it is essential to practice shovelling and clearing of the victim too! 

In winter La Chamoniarde organizes off-piste skiing safety courses for adults and young skiers. Avalanche searching practice, coached by mountain guides are also available.
