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
