DIGITAL TRAINING PLATFORM
FOR SKITOURING AND FREERIDING
FOR ENJOYABLE ASCENTS AND STEEP DESCENTS
Ski touring and freeriding are booming. There have never been as many people out in the backcountry as there are today. But as thrilling as these sports are, skiing in unsecured terrain is challenging. There is often not much between the joy of fresh powder snow and a possibly fatal avalanche accident. Responsible risk management is therefore essential for ski tourers and freeriders.
In close cooperation with the Verband deutscher Berg- und Skiführer (VDBS – German Mountain and Ski Guide Association), numerous professional mountain guides, and safety and first aid experts, ORTOVOX has completely reworked its SAFETY ACADEMY LAB SNOW, which has received widespread attention. The new interactive, multimedia training platform clearly and comprehensibly sets out all the important safety aspects of ski touring and freeriding across four chapters with 16 video tutorials, comprehensive educational modules and numerous quizzes. All of the content is aimed at beginners and advanced freeriders and ski tourers.
