Dachstein 2016

The year is slowly coming to an end and the in-between time of the guiding season is perfect for training seminars. Peter Jeromel and the Slovenian guides association organized a glacier travel and crevasse rescue seminar, which was supposed to be carried out beneath Grossglockner, but the location was changed to Dachstein due to bad weather.

Milan and I were very surprised to see that the steep road from Schladming to the bottom station of the Dachstein cable car was covered in ice, forcing us to put on snow chains. After a slight delay we got together with the rest of the group, comprising more than twenty mountain guides, with Janez Primožič and Aljaž Anderle helping Peter with all the organization and preparation of the seminar. We rode the cable car to the top, where we put on our touring skis and descended onto the glacier. The visibility was poor and it was very cold, minus 12°C, with a strong northerly wind adding an additional wind chill. It felt positively arctic. We worked at three stations: classical crevasse rescue, rescue using Petzl RAD system, and rescue using Mammut RESCYOU system. Siberian conditions made for some memorable moments as we learned about the advantages and disadvantages of new products and techniques. When we couldn’t stand the cold anymore, we returned to the restaurant where we analysed the activities and talked about our previous experiences.

Such educational and social events are more than welcome, and the number of attendants is a proof of that. Everyone agreed that the subject was well chosen. I’d like to thank all the instructors and the participants for an informative and pleasant day that we had despite the poor weather.

Dachstein 2016

Vodniška sezona se preveša proti koncu leta in vmesni čas je primeren za licenčno usposabljanje gorskih vodnikov. Tako je Peter Jeromel za ZGVS organiziral licenčni seminar ledeniške tehnike. Prvotno previdena lokacija na ledeniku pod Gossglocknerjem je odpadla zaradi slabe vremenske napovedi. Sneg je pobelil Alpe in zato je bila izvedba licenčnega seminarja prestavljena na ledenik pod Visokim Dachsteinom.Z Milanom sva se plejala preko Graza. Prvo presenečenje sva doživela na strmi zasneženi cesti iz Schladminga proti spodnji postaji dachsteinske gondole. Zasnežena cesta je prikrivala led in moral sem namestiti snežne verige, da sem se pripeljal do konca ceste. Zbralo se nas je več kot 20 gorskih vodnikov. Zraven Petra Jeromla sta kot inštruktorja sodelovala še Janez Primožič in Aljaž Anderle. Tema seminarja je bilo gibanje po ledenikih in reševanje iz razpok.Ko smo se vsi zbrali smo se odpravili z gondolo do zgorne postaje, kjer smo si nadeli turne smuči in se spustili do ledenika. To smo izvedli v slabi vidljivosti. Temperatura je bila -12 st. C. Nizki temperaturi je potrebno dodati severni veter, ki nam je pričaral arktične razmere. Inštruktorji so nam pripravili tri točke, kjer smo delali na klasičnem reševanju iz razpok, Petzl Petzel RAD sistem in Mammutov RESCYOU. Po demonstraciji smo sami preizkušali uporabo navedenih načinov reševanja iz razpok. Sibirke razmere so pripomogle k zanimivim izkušnjam, ki smo jih s tem dobili in nam lahko v prihodnje koristijo pri uporabi in svetovanju. Spoznali smo prednosti in slabosti novih pripomočkov, smiselnosti navezovanja z bičem na dve vponki. Ko se je mraz preveč zagrizel do kosti, smose odpravili do restavracije gondolske žičnice, kjer smo opravili analizo in se pogovorili o svojih preteklih izkušnjah.Število udeležencev dokazuje potrebo po usposabljanju in druženju na našem strokovnem področju. Izbrana tema na mestu, kar je bilo razbrati iz neformalnih razgovorov. Hvala inštuktorjem in ostalim udeležencem za koristen in prijeten dan, ki ga ni moglo pokvariti slabo vreme.
