This introductory avalanche course is designed for snowshoers, cross-country skiers and hikers of all ageswho want to learn about avalanche rescue and safe travel in the backcountry. Participants will learn what avalanche safety equipment is important and how to use it, will become aware of avalanche zones, and will learn companion rescue.
We believe that the avalanche safety instructional needs differ among varying activities.
Don't take an AST 1 course with a group of skiers when you can go at your own pace and focus on your own needs with our industry-leading course AST 1 General Public. This course complies with the Canadian Avalanche Association and after successful completion you will be awarded a certificate.
