AVALANCHE SAFETY COURSE

AVALANCHE SAFETY COURSE

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 a maximum instructor to student ratio of 1:8.

There is a minimum of 3 students required for each course. Additional courses are available upon request.

Unfortunately, AST 1 Courses will not be available with the resort's Mountain Safety team this winter. To find available courses in the area please click on the Avalanche Canada logo below.
