We’ve been given a set of 4 articles on transceivers and transceiver rescues by our partners the International School of Mountaineering (ISM). They are all written by experienced IFMGA Mountain Guide Terry Ralphs.
There are also some other articles available written by a number of other experienced people.
It seems like an appropriate time to do this given the huge amount of snow in Austria and Switzerland at the moment, though really this information is something everyone who is planning on doing any off piste skiing should know. Of course nothing is a substitute for real world practice and indeed a course with a professional.
More information on the International School of Mountaineering can be found on their website,†www.alpin-ism.com. All the equipment required to be safe when off piste can be purchased from facewest.co.uk, see our Avalanche Safety Pages.
We’ve also got a who host of product guides and information for off piste skiers and tourers of all levels.†View more Ski Product Guides and Information from Facewest.
