Students should have a basic understanding of the weather and weather terminology, and have some experience navigating the Internet to view various weather maps and products. A technical science background is not required; however, some pre-course preparation will be helpful.
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.
Every mountain rider, no matter how experienced will benefit from this class.
This was a fantastic course to introduce me to learning about avalanche safety! All of our instructors were knowledgable and fun to be around. I now have a much better idea about what to look out for when backcountry skiing and am looking forward to practicing what we learned! "Don't just know better, do better. - Fredrik"
