As the most important safety measure we concentrate upon the improvement of the ski technique. Up to 80% of the accidents/off slope with serious results are based on falls, which are the result of bad skiing technique. Almost the whole rest, just in avalanche accidents, is based on tactical failure and their causes/results. Also here the bad skiing technique is very often the real cause (f.e. not enough distance within the group etc.)
Then the result of such accidents are suitable necessary rescue situations which must be also controlled of course and therefore be coached accordingly. One may not mix up only the order. Primarily most important is the avoiding of accidents /falls by training the correct skiing technique . A principle is what we call “falling is prohibited”. “Ha, ha”… one very often hears there of course. Looking at the fact that most oft he alpine accidents, also especially the tragic ones , e.g. with hiking, occure with banal falls, an “aha” is attached!
Even though for emergency case…
