Avalanche Skills Training - AST1 - Sledders (field portion)

Date: December 20, 2014

If you are working or recreating in BC or Alberta's beautiful backcountry on a snowmobile, you had better know a thing or two about avalanches.  Where they occur, how they work, what triggers them, how to begin to assess local conditions and make choices about travel in avalanche terrain... and what to do if the unimagineable happens to you or a member of your party.

Search and Rescue will not be there within 15 minutes after an avalanche, and that's your best window for survival.  Would you know what to do?

So take an AST1 course with Dave Merritt!  Registration is $295 plus GST.  Must have a sled, helmet, and basic avy gear (shovel, probe, transceiver) - if not, we may be able to help with rental arrangements well in advance.  (Note: this course is not an overnighter!)

This course runs the evenings of December 18th and 19th (in classroom), and all day in the mountains on December 20th.

Registration closes December 11th, 2014.
