Avalanche Safety Training, Andermatt Valley

End of December and beginning of January 2013 I was guiding in the Valley of Andermatt. The client’s aim of these multiday trips were to get an introduction in the sports of ski touring with the main focus in avalanche safety training and theory. We did a lot of ski touring, avalanche safety trainings, snow pits and practical field exercises. The hotel Tiefenbach gave us the right frame: Situated 2100m above sea level, it offers great ski touring opportunities as Chli Bielenhorn or Klein Furkahorn, hotel comfort, good food and class rooms. The access from Andermatt to the hotel and its superb skiing terrain is just a 2h walk.
