AVALANCHE SAFETY TRAINING

Avalanche Training For Your Safety

When heading into the backcountry in winter, it’s important to keep safety in mind. Completing our AST 1 avalanche safety training can dramatically lower your risk of triggering an avalanche and will equip on companion rescue techniques and trip planning expertise. This training helps you recognize hazardous terrain, and we will ensure that you know what to do when you encounter such regions.

Avalanche safety training is delivered in the backcountry, so you can experience real-life decision making applying the skills that you learn. Our goal is to raise your awareness to potential signs of danger in the Canadian Rockies, allowing you to enjoy outdoor adventures while staying safe.

Alpine Adventures Offers AST 1 Course Training

The level 1 AST course covers basic principles of winter safety when in avalanche terrain. You will learn how to read snow pack information, select the safest up tracks and identify risky terrain. After completing the course, you will head into the backcountry to explore and ride in confidence.

Our courses combine classroom education with fieldwork in the backcountry, so you will have the opportunity to look at the terrain and understand all principles of safety through direct application. Whether you’re exploring the Canadian Rockies on your own or heading out with our professional mountain guides, this training is essential to your safety.
