INTERNATIONAL SNOW TRAINING ACADEMY COURSE

ISTA – Come and get qualified this winter and gain experience and education in the backcountry. Our day discovery course will teach you about basic risk prevention when off-piste. You will be given the tools to stay safe in the backcountry.

The course is structured and designed around a typical day in the mountains. From meet and greet to the day’s end. The whole day is a combination of theory and enjoyable practical workshops.

These will take the form of learning the ISTA method, Risk assessment, identification and travel on safe terrain and learning how to manage a crisis situation/search for avalanche burial victims. In signing up for the qualification you receive a training kit which consists of the following material:

  • Training course book
  • Protective waterproof casing for when out in the mountains.
  • An avalanche emergency procedure.
  • ISTA Discovery badge and certificate on successful completion of the course.

The cost of the ISTA course is 240 CHF plus the day rate of 550 CHF, please get in contact for more details. There is an option to stretch the course out over two days which would mean more riding time.
