Winter lays her soft white blanket across the jagged mountains, smoothing even the most rugged terrain. This blanket lays the mountains supremely accessible with the slow shuffle at first followed by the dramatic slashing sprays of white.
This has been a challenging period for all of us - while we would like a return to normal, the pandemic will continue for the foreseeable future. The silver lining is that we are able to rediscover and explore our own backyard and see its incredible beauty and potential. I want to invite you to rediscover winter: the excitement of a fresh snowfall or a crisp sparkling day, the perfect powder turn, and the feeling of reward that only comes from working for your turns.
Practice makes perfect, and when it comes to responding to an avalanche incident you want to be highly efficient and almost automatic.
If you haven’t tried skiing with a guide before, but you love to ski powder this is for you.
Heli assisted ski touring in the alpine when the storm clears is what this is all about. Skiing unsettled fresh powder in a stunning location above your home town sounds like a dream come true. It’s now a reality!
Summiting peaks and skiing steep aesthetic lines are typically done in the spring when the days are long, and the snowpack is stable, although in truth “condition windows” present themselves throughout the season. This course focuses on the skills and knowledge to achieve these objectives.
This course teaches you essential skills required to travel in glaciated terrain as well as the ability to extract someone who has fallen into a crevasse.
This course will immerse you in complex terrain for 4 full days with the lowest guide to guest ratio offered in the corridor.
You deserve the right start to your Avalanche skills training! Developing solid foundational skills and good habits is key for a long and safe journey in the mountains.
