I honestly know WAY more now and my passion for the mountains has grown!I just finished my AST 1 in Squamish, Marcus in the classroom session was incredibly knowledgeable and his passion for teaching others about mountain safety made for a welcoming environment. Crazy amount of great info!
Eric was absolutely incredible, very knowledgeable and went above and beyond!Amazing customer service! Knowledgeable guides and overall excellent experience.
Truly went above and beyond!I had such an excellent experience during my all women’s AST1 course this past weekend with the lovely April Mason. Not only was she an incredibly passionate teacher, she truly went above and beyond to insure that we understood our place in the mountains and the impacts of our choices.
Build the Base Academy - Exactly what I hoped it would be!Overall, my whole experience was incredibly pleasant with everyone I interacted with at MSAA. Everyone took part in ensuring I had the best experience and this is why for any future backcountry adventures I will choose MSAA.
