Backcountry Education Courses

Take an in-the-field course that combines a day of skiing or riding via snowcat with clinics led by seasoned Alaska heli-guides, avalanche forecasters and veteran patrollers. Because the best turns are often made during storm cycles when avalanche stability issues may exist, passionate skiers and boarders often put themselves at risk. Learn how to identify, avoid, and escape the hazards. We use the uphill snowcat rides for lectures in order to get as much time on the snow as possible touring avalanche prone slopes and viewing different types of hazardous terrain. These classes are designed for expert skiers and snowboarders.
