NEW: Take your terrain management skills further.
Have you taken the AST-1, and you’re looking for a refresher? Maybe you’ve just finished your AST-1, and you’re wanting to learn more about travel techniques. Either way, this new certificate course from Avalanche Canada might be for you. This course focuses on the avalanche skill that is most commonly used in the backcountry: mitigating and avoiding avalanche hazard through terrain management skills and safe travel practices.
In this one-day, intensive course, you will meet your guide at 8AM in Canmore to review gear and objectives. Afterwards, you’ll travel to the day’s backcountry skiing destination. Terrain choices, identification of terrain features, and group management techniques will all be treated as a workshop, allowing everybody to gain a good understanding of the concepts and get a chance to bounce their ideas off of a certified guide.
