Avalanche Courses

Beacon, Probe, Shovel and Avalanche Education.

Take an avalanche class before you head into the snowy mountains. Skiing and riding in the backcountry is amazing but you should only do so if you've been educated, knowing a little can go a long way. Nick offers a high quality avalanche education experience and is one of the American Avalanche Association's Professional Course Trainers. Every backcountry partner should take a Level 1 course at a minimum. If you are looking for more or want to refresh and advance your skills spend a day or two for mentoring on a private course. Taking the Level 2 or Pro courses? To make the most out of your time and money you can spend a day with Nick before the course to prepare for the advanced nature of these courses.
