Summer avalanches do sometimes happen and there have, sadly, been a few reported in the last few weeks, as there are every year.

In our Archives, we found this report from Charlie Evans while he was preparing for a (successful) climbing trip in Kyrgyzstan.

Walking off the beaten track

 

Join us for a thrilling 4 days and 2 nights of skiing, touring, adventure and laughs this Spring: 28th April to 1st of May 2016

Maybe you've thought about doing a ski tour and staying overnight in a mountain hut, but don't want to commit to a week tour or longer? This short hut tour at the end of April could be the answer! You'll get a chance to find out what it's all about with a lovely group of like-minded people. It's all about getting away from the beaten track into stunning Alpine landscapes, and having a great adventure. Also great for more experienced tourers, who just fancy a short break away at the end of the ski season.
 
No previous ski touring experience is required but a reasonably good level of fitness and intermediate/good off-piste skiing are recommended.
 

Still some spaces available!
