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 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"
