Salomon and Atomic have launched an awesome initiative to promote mountain safety education. Through a new online platform, Mountain Academy, all you need to do is sit down and pin your ears back…watch, listen, learn and stay safe out there.
“Through a series of high-quality videos, pictures, animations and self-tests, Mountain Academy students gain fundamental knowledge in snowpack variables, identifying different types of avalanches, basic information about rescue tools and techniques,”
There are currently two courses which are $29 each, payable as a one time fee or they can also be accessed by redeeming the voucher you receive when buying Atomic Backland and Automatic products or Salomon Quest and MTN.
