Last year I took the first Level One Avalanche Course at the Manitoba Hut, hosted by the Alaska Avalanche School. It was an inspiring, humbling and empowering experience that I highly recommend to anyone doing winter travel in the mountains. Whether you are new to Alaska’s terrain and snow or have been playing in the mountains your whole life, this course delivers high-value, essential information for making safe and educated decisions.
Every mountain rider, no matter how experienced will benefit from this class.
The AAS level 2 class dove deeper into avalanche and group mechanics. The knowledge presented in the course will help preapre students wanting to take the next steps in backcountry travel. I feel much better equipped to make well informed snow travel. I feel much better equipped to make well informed snow travel decisions- even if limited information is readily available.
Highly recommend this course for any riders. Learned a lot and it really put a perspective on how the situation should be handled.
