Hardly any other ski area provides as much natural snow as Warth-Schröcken. Anyone who wants to get out and about away from the official pistes needs good training. That is why the SAAC Basic Camps offer free, 2-day avalanche seminars.
In practice-oriented workshops, qualified mountain guides raise awareness among freeriders & and variant skiers about Alpine dangers away from the pistes. In cooperation with SAAC =(Snow&Avalanche Awareness Camps), participants learn how to analyse an avalanche location, the weather report and other matters, and how to correctly assess terrain, get tips on tour planning and how to use the requisite safety equipment.

On the first afternoon there is a theory session of around 3 hours. This is when mountain guides and freeride experts provide information about Alpine hazards away from the secured pistes. On the second day you then head out into the terrain in small groups with qualified ski and mountain guides from SAAC. It is free to take part in the SAAC Basic Camp when you have a valid ski pass. Emergency equipment (avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe) may also be loaned free of charge. All skiers and snowboarders over the age of 14 can take part. Bring plenty of technical expertise for the terrain with you.
In the multi-day consolidation camps (SAACnd Step) the knowledge learned in the Basic Camps is expanded upon. As an autonomous freerider, the emphasis is on Alpine experience – both Alpine (knowledge of the terrain, of the snow etc.) as well as group dynamics (making decisions on the mountain, group pressure etc.). The decisions taken by the mountain guide during the tour should help participants to better understand the background of tour planning and behaviour out on the terrain. In the evenings what everyone has experienced is then discussed and the next route determined.
One moment please.
