Avalanche Skills Training 2 (AST 2)
Spring 2018, various dates available for group bookings
The AST 2 is a four day course that focuses on decision making. Day 1 is spent refreshing and learning about avalanches and snow science. Then we spend 3 days traveling through the backcountry, making decisions and managing risk. This is where you begin to learn how to negotiate terrain to minimize avalanche risk.
The AST 1 is the minimum prerequisite. For this course we're looking for people with backcountry skiing/riding experience who are looking to work towards bigger terrain. Drop us a line if you want to know more!
Rope Rescue/Glacier Travel Course
Spring 2018, various dates available, minimum 4 students
Our 2 day course spends Day 1 getting hands on with rope systems outside in the snow. We show you the simple systems and equipment you need and different gear you may want to make it all easier. Day 2 we take our skills up onto a glacier to ski/ride and put what you've learned to work.
