3 hr evening lecture / 1 full (8 hour) field day / $195
This workshop reviews Level 1 curriculum and is meant for backcountry users who have received some avalanche safety training but are not interested in repeating the full Level 1 course. The classroom session at AAS offices in Anchorage precedes a full day in the field (specific locations chosen based on conditions at the time of the course). Participants can expect review of the following skills:
Rescue techniques and new technology
Transceiver use and practice
Snow stability evaluation
Route selection and travel procedures
Prerequisites: Participants must have already completed a Level 1 class. Prior to the start of the course, students should re-read Avalanche Essentials and/or Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain, track Turnagain Pass area weather, and come to the workshop prepared with specific questions and areas of focus.
No dates are currently scheduled. Please contact us if you are interested in this course.
