Risk Management in the Mountains

Risk management in the mountains includes knowing about and classify alpine danger, using securing techniques, reading the snow, reacting the right way and much more.
For individuals, families, friends and companies.
In our practical workshops we train your knowledge and show your options on how to avoid accidents in the mountains beforehand. This creates awareness of what it means and what it implies to move in mountains and in nature.
To have a good alpine risk management means: planning your tours and peaks intensively, flexible and successful completion of your objectives, and feeling good at the same time.
To be safe on the mountain is always a process, not a status!

To know about alpine danger
You will learn to differentiate between objective and subjective dangers, and to classify them so that you can recognize and consciously minimize the risks. You will gain on individual security and develop your own decision making strength. Most accidents in the mountains happen because of ignorance (and overconfidence), since outdoor and mountain enthusiasts are often not even aware of the danger they are running in.

Securing techniques
Technical aids are practical if you know how to use them. Various rope and safety techniques are trained and used.

Winter Special: Snow and Avalanche Camp
You can learn how to read the surface of the snow. Assessment of the terrain, the right line for ascent and descent, assessment of the snow situation, how to interpret avalanche report and warning levels, what does a snow profile tell me?, use of avalanche transceivers, shovel and probe, airbag yes or no, etc.

Equipment
Which equipment is necessary for which undertaking in the mountains? What really helps ME and my partners, and not the economy? Advantages and disadvantages of the different materials.

Weather
To have basic knowledge of meteorology has nothing to do with a weather app. Doing your own weather forecast is helpful: first when planning your tours and also during the tour, to identify predictors and act accordingly.

Mental strength
Who doesn’t know that: in some situations the adrenaline level simply rises. How to deal with it, or how you can even take advantage of this nervousness.

What to do if the roof is on fire
If an accident occures despite all the measures taken beforehand, what do you have to do? First aid, rescue chain, technical aids, etc.

Moving in the mountains and in nature, includes an increased risk of life. This legal term makes it clear how essential it is to recognize possible dangers and to make the right decisions – both before and during a mountain tour.
Our courses, lectures, workshops on the subject of Risk Management in the mountains are very diverse and, depending on your wishes, include snow and avalanche training, safety techniques for ice and rock, mental training, etc.
In this way, our offer to hobby mountaineers is to have additional tools when skiing/snowboarding off-piste, when climbing, during a trip to remote regions, when paragliding… to be safe.
