DVA training zone

You are an off-piste fan? Before heading out to the powder snow, it's essential to prepare your off-piste route carefuly.


Having a D.V.A.* is good, but knowing how to use it is even better!

The "D.V.A.* training zone", located in the heart of Tignes on the banks of the lake, consists of 6 permanently beacons buried under the snow. It allows freeriders to learn, practice or perfect their own searcg technique using en avalanche transceiver. Free introductory sessions are organized every Tuesday at 5:30 pm by the Lac ESF. Join in!

And verifying that your D.V.A.* works before heading out is vital!

The "D.V.A.* Checkpoint", installed on the totems next to the meather and snow condition bulletins, allows you to test your D.V.A.* in transmission mode.
Before heading off-piste, don't forget to set your D.V.A.* to transmission mode.
To search for someone buried by an avalanche, don't forget to set it to reception mode.
