Course Details

A must for everyone who travels in the backcountry in the Wasatch. This three day, 24 hour course emphasizes awareness and avoidance of avalanche terrain. We teach and provide a checklist for basic decision-making strategies. The course includes travel techniques, basic rescue procedures and information that should be known by anyone traveling with or without a guide in the backcountry. Students can expect to develop a good grounding in how to prepare for and carry out a trip, to understand the basic decision making framework, and learn to rescue a buried person (if an avalanche occurs and someone in the party is caught). This course includes both classroom and field work and is based in the Park City area.
