Avalanche Safety Training Level 1

Howdy everyone,

I hope everyone had a good summer.  A side from the slow start we had there in the spring, do to all the flooding.  I hope all the best to those affected.  Also hope everyone was able to get out and do some climbing this past season.

Like most of you have noticed.  Its starting to look a lot like Fall/Winter  Mountain Tops are mostly covered with this early season snow, Ice routes are starting to forum and the trees are changing colours.

Which brings me to the main topic of this email I'm sending out to everyone.  Each year in Canada we lose on average 14 people to Avalanches.  Some ones friend or even family member.  A good number of these deaths are people just like yourself.  Want to get out to the mountains for a nice Snow Shoe or cross country ski in a valley bottom with there families.  Not knowing the hazard that's above.  Not understanding what to look for when there out and about.

Avalanche Safety Training Level 1 is a basic, 2 day course that I think everyone should take.  If your Snow Shoeing, Cross Country Skiing, Ice Climbing, Scrambling, or Back Country Skiing this should be the first thing you think about.


As most of you already know we are partnered up with Mountain Skills Academy.  I have been working with them to start offering courses to the other side of the market.  Snow shoer's, cross country skiers, ext.

Mountain Skills Academy will be offering two different styles of courses this season.  One for Back Country Skiers/Boarders and There General Public course (Everyone else).  The General Public course will be running a bit cheaper then the Skier/Boarder course.   Between both styles of courses there hoping to be able to run a course every weekend through out the winter.

For More info on these courses or any others.
