Product Description

Our Avalanche Skills Training (AST) course, offered through our Big Mountain Centre, is an excellent resource for those interested in winter backcountry recreation who haven’t been formally trained about avalanche hazards. The AST course focuses on avalanche hazard recognition and avoidance to help participants with their own decision making in the field. It is also a prerequisite for the CAA level 1 course.

This 2 day course covers avalanche terrain recognition and avoidance, companion rescue, and how to use the Avaluator, a decision support tool. All courses are taught by professional members of the Canadian Avalanche Association and have an instructor to student ratio of 8:1.

Details: 2 full days starting at 8:30am. Ratio is maximum 1:8, minimum 3 participants required. The first day of the course is all indoor and does not require a lift ticket. Please note regular rate includes a 1-day lift ticket.
