The focus of our AST program is on preparing people to make informed decisions in avalanche terrain and understand the risk they are engaging.

  • For AST 1 we spend 1 day in the classroom and 1 day in the field. A great introduction or a great refresher at the start of the season.
  • AST 2 is all about putting your skills, experience and AST 1 training to the test out in the field
