Equipment and clothing for the day

Please come dressed for a day on the slopes – usual thermals, ski pants, ski jacket, goggles, sunglasses etc. There will probably be a fair bit of standing about as a lot of snow/Avalanche awareness is theory based. Therefore, please dress warmly with easy to add/remove layers.

SnowPros will be providing backpacks, probes and shovels and transceivers. You are welcome to bring your own equipment should you have it and/or a backpack if you have anything else specific you want to bring

A final note from the SnowPros team: 'Whilst we are keen for you to ski off piste if possible, there is a lot of content to go through which will mean that this is a learning exercise. The content that we will be deliving is off piste mountain safety content taken from the training given to good level ski instructors. We will try to do as much practical as possible as well as deliver tips to help you with your off piste skiing'.
