Pikes Peak Alpine School has provided avalanche training in the Colorado since 1989. Our guides are AIARE Instructors and AMGA Apprentice Ski Guides at a minimum and all have the passion and credentials for teaching. Our course starts in a classroom setting, then moves to an alpine zone on Pikes Peak for the field session. This is a 8+ hours course.
We may use Hoosier Pass if conditions on Pikes don’t allow.
