SAAC Basic Camp

Every SAAC Basic Camp begins with a three-hour theory session on the afternoon of the first day of the camp. Using videos and Power Point, the SAAC mountain guides present the most important basics for risk-minimised freeriding and touring. Contents: - Introduction and detailed information on equipment - avalanche types - weather - terrain types - avalanche danger levels - group dynamics - obtaining and analysing information on avalanche conditions, weather, area, group, route


What to bring: approx. 3 hours time and interest. The theory part of a SAAC Basic Camp is not a dry lecture, but an active, relaxed acquisition of basic knowledge. Questions, suggestions and comments are welcome. At SAAC, co-operation is also rewarded with goodies from the sponsors.


In the practical part, the theory from the previous day is put into practice in practical exercises in the field. On the morning of the practical day, the SAAC mountain guides will hand out the emergency equipment and form groups at the meeting point. After obtaining avalanche and area information and an avalanche transceiver check, it's off into the terrain. Exercises in the terrain: -risk management -danger check - terrain check - decision aids - rules of behaviour - avalanche search


Bring along: Snowboard or ski equipment, rucksack - Who has: Avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe (we also lend them out free of charge)


Lift ticket: You can find out how much you have to pay for the lift ticket in advance on the page of the respective camp and when you register. Unfortunately, we are unable to refund lift tickets that have already been paid for in the event of non-participation.


Registration and further information can be found at SAAC.
