Training comes first!
In cooperation with the local freeriding experts and external partners, Hochfügen offers numerous courses and training opportunities for participants of all ages and all levels of difficulty. These courses pass important knowledge on to participants. First and foremost, this includes the protective equipment that even “normal” skiers should use. Helmets and back protectors are compulsory. Appropriate avalanche equipment is also essential. This includes a backpack – ideally an avalanche backpack – with a shovel and probe, as well as a first aid kit. Knowing how to act and how to use the avalanche equipment properly requires a certain level of experience, which can be gained in various camps in Hochfügen. This year we offer the ISTA avalanche training program.
