Organized by :
Mateusz Żółtak
Description :

For the 6th time we will gather to play in snow. As every year we will make sure we didn't forget how to arrest in snow, perform an avalanche search, set up a snow anchor and a pulley systems, etc.

As every year we will aim at the first and last ride of the Rax Seilbahn. Our training ground - the basin next to the Otto Haus (precisely at the left side of this webcam) - is around 20 minutes walk from the top station of the cable car.

Voting (doodle) for the date has ended - the winner is January 15th.

This isn't a course. If you are looking for one, Alpenverein organizes pretty many winter courses in English - see here, here, here and here.
