Along easy ski touring routes with little elevation difference the mountain guide will explain the necessary techniques in order to facilitate the changeover from the pistes to the open terrain. The course contents are trained as much as possible in practice: walking with the skins, the right kick-turns, skiing with touring equipment and rucksack, testing search strategies by using the avalanche transceiver etc. are best exercised in the open ski terrain. Moreover, theoretical contents regarding snow and avalanche awareness, tour planning, equipment, etc. are taught extensively during this course. Last but not least, the landscape of the amazing Dolomites will certainly accompany us during this week framing a stunning view on every step we take.
