Avalanche Skills Training 1 (AST1) - ski / snowboard based

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

Avalanche transceiverIf you are working or recreating in BC or Alberta's beautiful backcountry, 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.

So take an AST1 course with Barb Sharp!  This course costs $259 plus HST.  There is also an $18 lift ticket price by Powder King, to get everyone up into the alpine quickly.

Registration closes January 17th, 2013.
