Itinerary:
Have you ever been out in the backcountry on a day when whumpfs and shooting cracks are plaguing your approach leaving you wondering how to move around with confidence? Often these days come after a storm when the Hazard rating is Considerable, High,or evenExtreme and the powder is very tempting! If you have taken your AST1 and you travel through Avalanche Terrain on your backcountry trips, this Managing Avalanche Terrain course is for you! This MAT is a very focused field-based course designed to expand on the terrain management taught in the AST1 course and to develop more advanced winter back country travel skills. This course will mitigate your risk by honing your Terrain evaluation and travel skills
