Distress in the mountains

Finally, the holiday time is here, and with this come the outdoor activities in the mountains in South Tyrol which also cause personal accidents to increase.

However, we can avoid a lot of inconvenience with just a little more precaution. Alpine risks include downfalls, avalanches, weather changes, and rock fallings. Personal contribution to these accidents consist of lack of knowledge of the surroundings, lack of preparation, overestimation of ones own capabilities, and bad equipment.

Therefore, get ready for this season with accurate preparation through the technical literature that is available, and increase your knowledge about certain dangers by taking a course. There are numerous alpine schools that will help you explore the mountain in South Tyrol with active assistance and insight on the dangers.
