Glacier safety courses by La Chamoniarde


The beginning of summer means also the start of the mountaineering season in Chamonix.

La Chamoniarde, Chamonix's mountain rescue and prevention company, organizes mountain safety courses in the field.

The Chamoniarde is organizing glacier safety courses this summer

A non-profitable mountain rescue organization, the Chamoniarde has been playing an essential role in keeping both residents and tourists of the Chamonix valley safe for over 70 years.

This summer, the Chamoniarde is proposing a two days glacier safety course, which involves spending the night in a shelter and will allow participants to check and consolidate their mountaineering skills, more specifically focusing on glacier travelling and safety, and basic rope techniques.

Only French speaking!

Program and dates for summer 2019 will be online soon.
