AVALANCHES: JOIN US NOV 16+17 + SAFELY TAKE YOUR WINTER MOUNTAIN ADVENTURES TO THE NEXT LEVEL!

Do you venture out of bounds at the resort, off the hiking trails or into the backcountry of the mountains during winter?

If so, an Avalanche Skills Training Course Level 1 (AST 1) is your place to start. You don't need any experience to take this course. It is a must for everyone recreating in the backcountry or slack country.

Join us for a 2 day course in Canmore with Canadian Rockies Mountain Guides on November 16th + 17th, 2019! In this post we are going to go over what our upcoming AST1 course teaches, why it is unique, what you will need to bring and more!

I probably seem a little bit goofy for spending almost as much on a pair of ski pants as I did on my dog, but keep reading to find out how after much use, these high priced ski pants of mine (along with my girl Metsä) are still going strong!
