Avalanche Awareness in the Chamonix Valley

 

Living in the ‘off-piste’ mecca that is Chamonix,  I thought it would be a good idea to refresh my knowledge of avalanches and how to avoid them or deal with them if they happen.

So I signed up to a course run by the Avalanche Academy and found out much more about conditions in the local area and why it being so busy here is not necessarily a bad thing…

Read about it here in my blog for the Ski Club of Great Britain.
