Avalanche Course

An avalanche course is a must for all ski touring enthusiasts! Tyin Aktiv offers an introduction course at Tyin-Filefjell.

The theory portion is taken at the Filefjellstuene Lodge, before you venture off to the outdoors for the rest of the day.

This course aims to prepare you with all the skills you need to react safety in mountain areas that are exposed to avalanches. Key topics will be safety in avalanche prone areas, finding safe routes and also assessing terrain exposures. We will practice rescues and using avalanche safety equipment. The course runs over two days, combining avalanche theory, route planning and ski touring.

It is recommended that you have some experience with off-piste skiing before attending the course to ensure participant safety.
