Course Overview

Each year increasing numbers of skiers, snowboard­ers, and climbers venture into the mountains to enjoy snow-related outdoor recreation. Regrettably, each year some of these people die in avalanches.

Course topics include avalanche terrain recognition, ava­lanche climatology, snow stability elevation, alpine touring practices, avalanche accidents and search and rescue techniques. This course is instructed by a qualified member of CAA. Class size is limited to 16.
