Avalanche Training, Consulting, Forecasting & Risk Management 

I offer a variety of avalanche and snow safety training, forecasting consulting, and risk management services in Norway and abroad. Examples include risk management in ski guiding operations, hazard and risk assessments for industry/infrastructure, such as ski resorts, roads and mines, and projects in remote or high-altitude environments.


An ongoing project is the avalanche forecasting project for Gudauri Ski Resort, run by volunteer observers and avalanche professionals. The forecasts are published on www.avalanche.ge the social media website >>“Georgia Avalanche and Snow Conditions🇬🇪ზვავის და თოვლის შესახებ”.
