Preparing for the trip : There is an information meeting with your mountain leader the day before departure at 6pm at the Compagnie des Guides Office.
We recommend that you take special care in choosing your equipment because it contributes greatly to the success of your trip. As alpine conditions can be highly variable with sudden changes, it can get very cold in altitude, it is preferable to have numerous layers rather than one thick piece of clothing. It is not uncommon to have snow in the middle of summer, do not skimp on warm clothes even if the weather seems favourable. Contrarily, the sun can be scorching hot. Without weighing too much, you should always have sufficient equipment in your backpack to deal with the capricious and severe weather.
- A backpack with a capacity of at least 30 litres (better too big than too small). Make sure you have enough space for the picnic. A small tip in case it rains : even if you have a backpack cover, always protect your belongings in a plastic bag (a big rubbish bag) inside your backpack.
- A compact and solid travel bag, maximum 15kg.
- A pair of top-quality hiking boots with Vibram soles. For new shoes, we strongly suggest that you wear them beforehand to mold them to the shape of your foot. If you are prone to blisters : talcum powder applied to dry feet and in your shoes before you start your days hiking.
For added comfort regarding underwear, (t-shirts, boxers, socks), avoid cotton which is heavy, cold and dries very slowly. Opt for synthetic technical fabrics or wool, which is making a comeback. They are warmer and dry quickly.

A risk register (PRINCE2) is a document used as a risk management tool and to fulfill regulatory compliance acting as a repository for all risks identified and includes additional information about each risk, e.g. nature of the risk, reference and owner, mitigation measures. It can be displayed as a scatterplot or as a table.
ISO 73:2009 Risk management—Vocabulary defines a risk register to be a 'record of information about identified risks'.
Risk register of the project 'barbecue party' with somebody inexperienced handling the grill, both in table format (below) and as plot (right).
|Category||Name||RBS ID||Probability||Impact||Mitigation||Contingency||Risk Score after Mitigation||Action By||Action When|
|Guests||The guests find the party boring||1.1.||low||medium||Invite crazy friends, provide sufficient liquor||Bring out the karaoke||2||within 2hrs|
|Guests||Drunken brawl||1.2.||medium||low||Don’t invite crazy friends, don't provide too much liquor||Call 911||x||Immediately|
|Nature||Rain||2.1.||low||high||Have the party indoors||Move the party indoors||0||10mins|

A Risk Register can contain many different items. There are recommendations for Risk Register content made by the Project Management Institute Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) and PRINCE2. ISO 31000:2009 does not use the term risk register, however it does state that risks need to be documented.
There are many different tools that can act as risk registers from comprehensive software suites to simple spreadsheets. The effectiveness of these tools depends on their implementation and the organisation's culture.
A typical risk register contains:
- A risk category to group similar risks
- The risk breakdown structure identification number
- A brief description or name of the risk to make the risk easy to discuss
- The impact (or consequence) if event actually occurs rated on an integer scale
- The probability or likelihood of its occurrence rated on an integer scale
- The Risk Score (or Risk Rating) is the multiplication of Probability and Impact and is often used to rank the risks.
- Common mitigation steps (e.g. within IT projects) are Identify, Analyze, Plan Response, Monitor and Control.
The risk register is called 'qualitative if the probabilities are estimated by ranking them, as 'high' to 'low' impact. It is called'quantitative' both the impact and the probability is put into numbers, e.g. a risk might have a '$1m' impact and a '50%' probability.
Contingent response - the actions to be taken should the risk event actually occur.
Contingency - the budget allocated to the contingent response
Trigger - an event that itself results in the risk event occurring (for example the risk event might be 'flooding' and 'heavy rainfall' the trigger)
Although risk registers are commonly used tools not only in projects and programs but also in companies, research has found that they can lead to dysfunctions, for instance Toyota's risk register listed reputation risks caused by Prius' malfunctions but the company failed to take action. Risk registers often lead to ritualistic decision-making,illusion of control, and the fallacy of misplaced concreteness: mistaking the map for the territory. However, if used with common sense risk registers are a useful tool to stimulate cross-functional debate and cooperation.
