Snowlegend is once again organising its backcountry safety weekend in la Grave over the 14th/15th January. The aim is to increase awareness amongst freeriders of the risks and responsibilities in avalanche territory. The event covers how to estimate the risk of avalanche and decide if a situation or route is dangerous and to understand and apply the corresponding precautions on the terrain. Participants will also learn about search and rescue and how to use their avalanche beacon, probe and shovel in the case of an accident.
