Our goals, our values

ISTA wishes to increase freedom, pleasure and safety for snow sports amateurs, especially in the case of off-piste outings, by focusing on the knowledge and prevention of avalanche risks.

The ISTA philosophy places the human being in the centre of the problem and provides him with the best tools available to manage the risks and pleasures that can occur with snow.

The safety, sharing of knowledge, respect, pleasure and community represent our values. ISTA believes the mountains are a free space where one can learn to listen and observe nature. By understanding them better, we can prevent avalanche risks linked to snow sports.
ISTA training is also the opportunity to meet other snow enthusiasts and share a passion for snow sports all while increasing safety for you and your loved ones.
