Learn more about avalanche knowledge in our Avalanche course Free Skiing 2 according to standards from Svelav. Your instructor is an IFMGA mountain guide and avalanche instructor.


A three-day course for those who have previously participated in a basic course (Freeskiing 1). The focus is on trip planning and risk management and also the routine of daily preparation, implementation and follow-up, inspired by professional systematic management of avalanche risk but in a way that is adapted for vacation and recreation. The methodology is clear and easy to apply on your own upcoming adventures in the mountains. 

​​Some main steps include trip planning and preparation, group communication, decision-making, gathering and prioritizing information and safe route choices on the mountain. The course is mostly practical and the majority of the training takes place out in the mountains. The clear goal is to make the participants prepared to plan and do their own ski tours and off-piste skiing in a safe way.
