Weekly beep search

We are very fortunate to have Henry and Andreas giving Mountain Craft and Avalanche Awareness talks , as well as running very thorough beep search instructional courses. We highly recommend that all ‘Alpine’ clients attend their lectures, and participate in the Search and Rescue sessions. We would like to feel that we have the best prepared clientele in the Alps. These sessions are a must for any serious off-piste skier.

Keep in contact

To help us improve the organisation of our groups we would ask everyone to give the office a contact number and/or an address in the resort before arriving in town. This will help make sure that your first morning will go smoothly and you don’t miss out!
