Duration: 1 day.
Awareness - level workshops tailored to your group’s needs (1/2 day to 1 full day, no certification provided).
Participants are required to provide basic avalanche gear: shovel, probe and digital transceiver. Skiers need touring gear including skins and appropriate bindings. Snowmobilers will need an approved helmet, sled, and some way to transport their sled.
This is crucial for anyone recreating or working in the mountains, to keep the experience fun and make sure you come home at the end of the trip!
