What we’ll do

Distributed over an area of 5000m2 (representing the avalanche zone), 16 transmitters are buried under several meters of snow. Participants will have to operate the transmitters remotely using an electronic command. One or several transmitters will then be activated (randomly). The participants then need to locate victims with the help of the avalanche transceiver.

Who can come

The Avalanche Experience is ideal for all skiers who want to feel safer on their next off-piste trip and all hikers who would like to train and experience a simulated situation.
