Food is not provided as part of the course. Bring along a packed lunch and some snacks for each day.
As this course is offered out of the ACC Clubhouse in Canmore, we welcome all participants to stay with us at our on-site hostel. Located on a high bench overlooking the Three Sisters, Ha Ling and Mount Rundle, this is the most convenient and relaxing place to stay while completing your course. You can reserve your room for the three nights between your course dates upon registration. Or if you also need additional nights please call our reservations team on 403 678 3200 ext. 300.

Our Lead Ski Guide Doug Latimer oversees all AST programs. Doug has almost 20 years of experience in teaching AST and other winter instructional courses, as well as in developing course materials and ski guiding. We are extremely excited to have him on board for a second season after rave reviews in 2018/19.
We want to provide the best possible learning experience and give you maximum opportunity to ask questions. So for your field days (2,3 and 4) we bring in an extra guide/instructor where necessary to keep participant-to-guide ratios below a maximum of 8:1.
