The organising committee
It brings together professional mountain rescue workers from all around the world. Four separate commissions (air, medical, terrestrial and avalanche) work together to find solutions to issues which affect rescue teams everywhere.
After two days of working in commissions, participants will have the opportunity to spend Friday 19th October at the Grands Montets ski resort, where they will be able to take part in a practical session on avalanche rescue and issues related to global warming. The following (and final) day will be dedicated to sharing experiences and exchanging feedback on mountain rescue operations.
Although it is often considered the world capital of skiing and alpine climbing, this small town, with a population of just 9,400, has managed to retain its charm and its architectural heritage. Its long and rich history gives it an authentic feel.
Chamonix is an international venue which lives and breathes mountain sports. A huge number of activities can be enjoyed year-round.
In winter it is a Mecca for skiing, snowboarding, and free-riding. It is home to some of the world’s best-known descents and resorts, such as the incomparable Vallée Blanche, or the legendary Grands Montets ski area.
