    Weekend Intensive Skydiving and Avalanche Course is 3 days of practical and theoretical classes on skydiving and avalanche hazards and practices. All in a 100-year-old restored atmospheric cottage with a fireplace, tiled stove and Slovak local cuisine. The location of the hut means that we'll be skiing straight out of the hut for our classes! Sound like a good weekend? The training lasts three days and is conducted in the Low Tatras, in small, intimate groups, max 7 people.

    For whom

    The training is designed for people, skiing well on the slopes, who want to start, or have already started, their adventure with ski touring. For those who have basic knowledge of avalanche hazards or are already after the course. For those looking for unusual, less-traveled places with comfortable accommodation in rooms with private bathrooms, away from crowded Zakopane. This is also a great opportunity for those who would like to network with other participants to plan future skydiving expeditions together.
