The Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 course is designed to provide students with the ability to assess snowpack and terrain to make solid choices in avalanche country on a sled. The field portion of the AST 1 equips riders with the ability to assess the snowpack in real time and make decisions in terms of selecting the right terrain given the snowpack conditions in that given area. The afternoon of the field day will be spent dialing in your avalanche rescue technique in a variety of scenarios and contexts to make you the best riding partner possible.
