Recreational / Rescue / Sitka / Feb 18, 2022

This course is for anyone who travels in snowy mountainous terrain. A one-day course (8 hours of instruction, combination online learning and field exercises) focuses exclusively on how to be prepared and respond to an avalanche incident. This is a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience with techniques of companion rescue. Most avalanches that carry and/or bury a person are triggered by that person or 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.

Explore:

  • Companion Rescue
  • Multi Burial Scenarios
  • Complex Scenario
  • Organized Rescues

Lectures will be delivered via Zoom/Online Learning website.
