Date: January 19, 2013 8:30 am to January 20, 2013 7:00 pm

sledding avalanche safetyIf 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 $279 plus HST.  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.

Registration closes January 17th, 2012.
