Avalanche Transceiver Training Camp Lizumerhütte
The Lizumerhütte of the Haller Alpenverein in the Wattental now has its own, new and permanent avalanche transceiver training camp.
New safety initiative of the Haller Alpenverein
The Lizumerhütte of the Haller Alpenverein in the Wattental now has its own, new and permanent avalanche transceiver training camp - a super service for avalanche and touring courses, for education and training, for alpine athletes, instructors, exercise instructors (m/f), AV sections, mountain rescue, mountain rescue, alpine police, USI, etc. In addition, at the Lizumerhütte at the starting point of many ski tours, the new avalanche transceiver checkpoint of the Alpine Club and Mountain Rescue is installed.
Ski tourers and off-piste skiers, snowshoers, snowboarders (m/f) and interested parties can practice the correct use of the avalanche transceiver (LVS) here under realistic conditions. "It can not be that ski tourers are almost pushed into the criminal corner. But who is away from the slopes on the way, must be fully aware of the responsibility to themselves and others. The offers of the Alpine Club for the prevention of avalanche incidents are information, training, courses," emphasizes Gerald Aichner, OeAV Regional Chairman Tyrol. For this reason, the Alpine Club Hall near the Lizumerhütte now offers a permanent training field for practicing avalanche victim search using avalanche beacons.
The avalanche transceiver training camp is a training facility for avalanche transceivers. Various burial scenarios can be recreated in the training field. Here everyone can train the use of the avalanche transceiver on the spot, from simple to complicated multiple burials, everything can be practiced.
In the training area near the Lizumerhütte there are several avalanche transceivers buried in the snow at different depths. From a control center, the avalanche beacons can be activated by radio command.
Avalanche test column
With the avalanche transceiver test pillar, the Alpine Club and Mountain Rescue Tyrol want to increase the danger awareness and personal responsibility of ski tourers. The appeal is aimed specifically at the consistent carrying of functional and modern avalanche transceivers (LVS). This against the background of the fact that still about 1/3 of the tourers do without this standard emergency equipment.
The avalanche transceiver system can be used by everyone and by groups against registration.
