Stay updated

The mountain demands respect. Stay updated and educated about the avalanche danger before you head out to explore. Check varsom.no before you decide where to go, or talk to people with knowledge about the recent conditions. Remember, the choice is always yours.  

 

Rules of safety

– Choose a destination after your ability.

– A beacon has never, not once in history, saved a life on its own. Always remember a shovel and a probe.

– Losing a glove or a hat to the wind will knock you off your game. Always bring an extra pair.

– Stay away from avalanche terrain - nothing can justify being taken by an avalanche.

– A bivy bag is mandatory and in some cases a life saver.

– A headlamp is a must in a country where the day might be shorter than the hike.

– Remember enough food and fluids. Your body is like a car. A large engine helps no one without fuel.

– Make solid plans and always bring a map and a compass.

– If you have a GPS in your possession, learn how to use it.

– Download the Hjelp 113- app. A Norwegian help app that will tell you exactly what your position is when the accident strikes.

– Then there’s only one more thing; have a great time!
