Avalanche Skills Training 2 is a four day course about enhancing your decision making tools as a backcountry skier. Throughout the Course you will be exposed to hazards and learn how to properly mitigate them. Students will take turns each day leading the group under Johns supervision as he offers mentorship with your route finding and terrain assessment skills. Up tracking skills and techniques are also covered in this course. With a small group setting of only four participants everyone will have ample opportunity to lead the group under the supervision of a fully certified ACMG Guide and Avalanche Professional with the Canadian Avalanche association. Our guides have years of experience backcountry skiing in all types of terrain and mountain ranges not only in Canada but throughout the world. As we travel through various types of terrain we will discuss where accidents can occur and learn from mistakes made in the past. Learning the latest snow tests and when/where to get the most important information for reducing risk will be a daily exercise on this course. Each day we will have rescue exercises so that by the end of the course you will be confident in your skills in companion rescue scenarios should an avalanche occur. This course is the perfect foundation for you to start the never ending learning process of recreating in avalanche terrain. If conditions allow Glacier Travel techniques will also be taught on this course Group sizes are kept to a minimum for increased learning and mentorship during the course. Most courses will be held in Rogers Pass in between Revelstoke and Golden, BC.mitigate them.
