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!
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.
Everyone who rides in the backcountry needs this course. Save your buddies. They might save you or avoid that red flag.
This class has given me the most important part of riding deep and steep slopes. Showed me how to be calm and to know what I'm doing in an avalanche.
