Just a quick message to let you know that following on from the success of last season’s lectures there will again be a FREE Avalanche Awareness lecture in Chamonix every week this winter season.

The lectures are being held upstairs at La Terrasse bar in the centre of Chamonix. They will be at 18.15 every Monday from 10 Dec 2012 to 11 Mar 2013. NB: Christmas and New Year week the lectures will be on a Sunday night instead.

Lectures last around 45 minutes, and will be delivered by qualified Mountain Guides resident in Chamonix. The lectures cover a variety of topics, including avalanche avoidance and rescue techniques.

Lectures are provided courtesy of

There is no charge for attending, so please show your support for La Terrasse by buying a drink from the bar.

Have a safe season.....

excellent, great initiative. Let’s hope the French government back down on their supertax for beer now.
