Surrounded by the impressive mountains of Warth-Schröcken, countless deep snow slopes attract freeriders away from the regular slopes. The pure white makes them feel like they are flying as they lay their first tracks on the slope. There are, however, many dangers lurking.
To prepare and to train winter sports enthusiasts for possible emergencies, the avalanche transceiver training centre at the Steffisalp-Express lift offers courses and workshops about using the shovel, probe and avalanche transceiver – with expert mountain guides. Participants learn which strategies and search methods are used in different circumstances to track down and dig out victims as soon as possible.
