Winter session started with two busy days with the mountain guides Petr Giacintov, Vojta Dvořák and Martin Šťourač. Although at the end of March, the mountains offered perfect winter conditions, which intensified the outdoor practice.

Mountaineering techniques and rescue skills were trained such as walking with the crampons, using ice-axe, making the pulley system, provisory transport and bivouac survival.

In the evening, Himalayan climber Honza Trávníček shared his experiences from his expeditions to the 8000 peaks.
