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!
For six seasons now I’ve worn a pair of black ski pants that set me back a solid $650. Around the same time that I bought my pants, a tiny blue heeler named Metsä came into my life wearing an $800 price tag of her own. 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!
Do you venture out of bounds at the resort or into the backcountry when out on the trails in winter?
If so, an Avalanche Skills Training Course Level 1 (AST 1) is the perfect place to start your winter backcountry mountain education, no experience necessary! And you can do so in Canmore on November 24-25th!
"Freedom to roam and connection to the earth, to the people around me, and to myself. I have had some of the best moments in life in the mountains, but also some of the hardest life lessons."
Canadian Rockies Mountain Guides is pleased to be offering an Avalanche Skills Training program exclusively for women on December 2nd and 3rd (Saturday & Sunday).
Earlier this year, my best friend Jessica, suggested we go on a ski expedition. It didn't take long for us to stumble across information about resort and back country skiing in Chile, convince two other girls to join us and find a guide willing (and nuts enough) to lead the four of us around some volcanoes and ranges found in the Andes!
