Amazing experience - will never forget!I signed up for the Intro to Backcountry course and was quite nervous due to my lack of experience in the backcountry. Our guide, April, was extremely patient and understanding. I was definitely the slowest and the least experienced haha, but I never felt pressured and April and the group were incredibly helpful and reassuring. I can't recommend this course enough.
Fantastic ExperienceFantastic Experience. I participated in the Introduction to Split-boarding. Highly recommended! April is an excellent guide, patient and extremely knowledgeable.
Beyond my Expectations!I participated in the "Women`s Intro to Backcountry" course and my experience was beyond my expectations. April and Meagan are excellent guides, both are extremely knowledgeable and their passion for this sport contagious.
Amazing!What an amazing and professional program. Just completed my AST1 with April Mason who was an incredible teacher. Learned so much and feel so much more confident in the back country. Highly recommend the program and will continue my mountain education with MSAA
