Recreational / Rescue / Haines / Dec 10, 2023

This 8-hour course combining online pre-course work and in person field instruction is for anyone who travels in snowy mountainous terrain! Focused on how to be prepared and respond to an avalanche incident you will gain hands-on experience with techniques of companion rescue. Most avalanches that carry and/or bury a person are triggered by someone in their party; an immediate response by member(s) of the group involved is the best chance for survival.

Avalanche Rescue is one of two foundational courses in the A3’s recommended progression. Be ready to save a life; always travel with someone you trust to save yours.

Students pursuing the professional track are required to take the 1 day rescue course prior to the Pro 1.
