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.
Stay Safe in the backcountry and have your buddies backs - take a class with AAS!
Everyone who rides in the backcountry needs this course. Save your buddies. They might save you or avoid that red flag.
Highly recommend this course for any riders. Learned a lot and it really put a perspective on how the situation should be handled.
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"
