The basics of mountain safety
Video by MOUNTAINEERING OBJECTIVE

During your ski touring, snowshoeing or splitboard excursions, it is very important not to leave without certain mountain safety precautions. When you go out in an unmarked environment, that is to say off the slopes, avalanches can be at every street corner (or tree). In this video with theESF Montgenèvre we cover the basics of off-piste safety. We will talk about the famous DVA probe excavator pack without which you should never leave. But also the double check, how to shovel efficiently and observe the different layers of snow.
