The objectives of this initiation:
A guide, mountain professional, will give you the rules of safety and behavior in the face of an avalanche
He will introduce you to the safety pack, which is essential for anyone who moves off the slopes, including a DVA (Avalanche Victim Detector), a shovel and a probe.

I will explain the basic mechanisms of avalanches by helping you identify the different layers of the snowpack.
