Avalanche Skills Training 1- Adult

January 11 - January 12

Do you venture off the trails, out of bounds, or into the backcountry? An AST 1 is the place to start. It is a must for everyone recreating in the back or slack country. You don’t need any experience or equipment to take our course (brand new BCA transceiver, shovel, probe and pack is provided for use). This is the course where you’ll learn how to recognize avalanche terrain and how to self-rescue. An AST 1 is a two day course with both classroom and field components. This is the first step for both you and your friends towards safe travel in the mountains.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN AN AST 1:
Avalanche formation and release
Identify avalanche terrain
The basics of trip planning
Optimal use of tools and resources
Forecasts to mitigate your avalanche risk
Use appropriate travel techniques in avalanche terrain
Intro to companion rescue
