Learning how to avoid deep powder danger: An avalanche course in Austria

In January this year I attended an Avalanche Awareness course in the Austrian resort of Kühtai.

The Snow & Avalanche Awareness Camps (SAAC) have been set up in 20 resorts around Austria to educate people about the causes of avalanches and alpine dangers in general.

As more and more people now venture off piste, the government and tourist board decided to fund the courses so that everyone, particularly young people who are put off by the costs, are more aware of the risks.

Find out more about the course in my article for Daily Mail Online, TravelLearning how to avoid deep powder danger: An avalanche course in Austria
