Verbier EMS Training
A four day course aimed at ensuring that your skills in transceiver searches, rope-work, avalanche awareness, safe travel and navigation are up to speed for the BASI Level 4 European Mountain Safety assessment.
The course will run by David Roberts, who has successfully coached colleagues from New Generation Verbier for the EMS Assessment over the last three seasons. David holds the BASI Level 4 EMS, MLTB Winter Mountain Leader Award and International Mountain Leader Carnet. He has been on ski-mountaineering trips all over Europe, as well as China and South America, including first ski descents in Patagonia.
We intend to use Verbier’s extensive network of Itinerary pistes for much of this course, especially the first three days. This enables us to travel quickly to good sites for coaching the skills, rather than wasting time skinning or boot-packing there.
