Later, the school became known as the Alaska Mountain Safety Center, where Doug, along with Jill Fredston, began teaching avalanche safety courses. The Alaska Avalanche School has grown steadily in the four decades since its inception, and now a staff of 25 professional instructors reaches hundreds of students. We offer several courses every year. Select a link below to view current courses and offerings.
The Pro I course opened the door for further learning, career development and a greater grasp of my freedom of the hills!
Every mountain rider, no matter how experienced will benefit from this class.
Companion rescue was a very valuable course. I am a novice backcountry skier and I was made welcome and all of my questions were answered sincerely.
This was a fun class that allows you to manage the risks in the backcountry. I learned how to properly use my gear and safety do what I love. Thank you all.
