Avalanche Skills Training 1 (AST1) - Search and Rescue, Ministry of Environment

Date: February 12, 2012

This two-day Avalanche Skills Training 1 (AST1) course for members of Prince George Search and Rescue (PGSAR) as well as for an RCMP member and Ministry of Environment employees, took everyone to the Pine Pass.  Powder King kindly gave us a discount on a one-time lift to the top - from there the group skinned or snowshoed to skiers left into the Black Forest and up into the tree line.  When the clouds lifted, instructor Dave Merritt showed the students the avalanche terrain across the valley so they could discuss safe travel and route finding.
