Avalanche Safety Training


Have you ever wanted to go back country touring? Do you already go back country touring?

Do you know how to keep yourself safe?

If the answer is no and you plan on going back country in Australia or around the world you need to gain some knowledge


In 2014 an avalanche in Victoria killed two snowboarders. Also in 2014 a skier was buried by an avalanche at Thredbo resort and only survived because he was pushed into a creek bed, which provided an air cavity. In early March 2015 an avalanche in Austria killed an Australian skier.


The two day AST 1 course developed by Avalanche Canada will teach you the basics of safe travel in the back country, allow you to recognize avalanche terrain and make more informed slope stability evaluations. You will learn proper self-rescue and group management techniques for the backcountry. The AST 1 training is also for APSI instructors looking to acquire their ISIA stamp, increasing employment opportunity internationally.
