Start your season off right (and save your ski bases) with a weekend of learning and discussion! The material covered in this weekend seminar will take you beyond the AST-2 course, and into the world of leadership and personal development. This isn’t a snow science seminar: while we’ll discuss snow assessments and their role in the decision-making process, we’re focused on the whole decision-making framework. This two-day seminar will discuss components that influence hazard management and decision-making in avalanche terrain. In the classroom, your guide will discuss current research and industry case studies. Workshops will help you improve your understanding of your own personal development as a back country user, your personal risk tolerance, and your role in a group or as a leader.

Follow-up email discussion throughout the 2018/2019 ski season will allow you to track avalanche considerations as the season progresses, keep in touch with your guide and other course participants, and bring your observations, concerns and questions to the group as they come up.

Please review our participant responsibility guidelines!

*Cancellation Policy*: If a participant is unable to attend a paid course or trip, there will be no refund unless the participant finds a suitable replacement that is acceptable to the trip coordinator. Acceptable waiting list candidates will have priority. It will then be the participant's responsibility to recover funds from the replacement. If the coordinator cancels an event, participants get a refund (less any non-recoverable costs). Note that ACC National does not refund hut fees due to weather, delay, closures, or any other reasons. The Calgary Section of the ACC is a not for profit club and we only charge attendees what it costs us to provide courses or trips.
