Do you spend your free time in Zakopane? You like skiing but you would like to try something more, and explore the Tatra Mountains in the winter? We invite you to ours trainings for at the intermediate and advanced level. It includes basic avalanche trainings, trying your ski skills off the piste and overcoming trails along the most beautiful regions of the Tatra Mountains. We guarantee nice atmosphere and a professional care of the mountain guides and rescuers. We are waiting for you!

TRAINING DURATION

WHERE IT DOES TAKE PLACE:

THE PROGRAMME INCLUDES:

  • technique of ascending and downhill travel
  • learning of swings (overcoming steep sections while ascending)
  • learning of traversing – moving cross the slope
  • information about selecting the most appropriate ski route (reduction of a risk of avalanches)
  • basic information about avalanches and a code of behaviour in the mountains
  • exercises with the Avalanche Safety Gear (detector, probe, shovel) – learning how to handle it properly and practical exercises, during which each pair must find buried avalanche detector two times
  • downhill with climbing skins on
  • downhill outside the ski pistes, in the different kinds of snow

WHAT SHOULD YOU TAKE WITH YOU?

(it’s not necessary, but we highly recommend having these things):

  • backpack with a capacity of approximately 25-30 l (you have to pack all your stuff in it)
  • helmet
  • warm ski clothes (jacket and pants)
  • something to eat (chocolate bars/ fruits / sandwiches)
  • something to drink (tea or other beverage)
  • light jacket of Goretex or Primaloft type – during the ascent you can heat yourself up pretty much, so it’s good to have some lighter clothing to put on you, and it is preferred to leave the warm clothing for the training time and the downhill travel
  • sunglasses
  • goggles
  • gloves – one lighter pair for the ascent and the warmer one for the exercises and downhill
  • cap/beanie
  • multifunctional scarf of Buff type – it works better during the ascent, because it lighter that the cap/seamed cap
  • comfortable socks
  • thermo-active underwear

SUGGESTED PLACES:

  • Kuźnice -> Dolina Jaworzynki -> Hala Gąsienicowa -> Stawy Gąsienicowe -> Karb -> Czarny Staw Gąsienicowy -> Hala Gąsienicowa -> Kuźnice
