The Avalanche Skills Training 2 – AST 2 course is your next step in avalanche skills development after completing an introductory course. To fully enjoy the backcountry it’s crucial you understand avalanche phenomena, recognize the terrain where avalanches occur and find routes that minimize risk. This course is being offered exclusively for ACC members and includes 4 days in the field (vs. the standard 3).

Notes:

Cost for ACC members is $550, guests $600 (they may as well become a member). Upon acceptance on the course, e-transfer to the RMS Treasurer is required.
