Avalanche rescue

EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING

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.
