AST 1 PLUS - 7 hours of class and two field days
AST 1 is the introductory avalanche course taught in Canada. Our course differs from others in that it involves an additional field day which has a heavy focus on companion rescue. We also have low instructor to student ratios to ensure the training is tailored to your individual experience level. Students should expect an intensive course with a lot of information. Please browse Avalanche Canada's free online Avalanche Tutorial.
Staying in Haines Junction affords the student an opportunity to stay where the course classroom is. Field days start and end at the hostel and students have the opportunity to meet new ski and mountain friends all in the comfort of the best hostel in North America!: THE WANDERER'S INN!
