This practical-application based Level I avalanche course is designed specifically for recreational skiers looking to ski tour safely in the backcountry. Our course offers two full fields days at a low (4:1 max. Student:Instructor ratio) to facilitate learning and model appropriate touring group sizes.  To maximize time in the field, material is introduced to students with a robust self-guided online learning module provided by the American Avalanche Institute, designed to be completed prior to the start of the course. This Level I is run by AMGA Certified Ski Guides, and with this training  (the highest level of training available for ski guides in the world) we can provide insight and a level of safety that may be missed on other courses.
