Avalanche Canada Training Level 1 Castle Staff only
Do you venture out of bounds, off the trails, or into the backcountry? An AST 1 is your place to start. You don’t need any experience to take this course. It is a must for everyone recreating in the backcountry or slackcountry.
This is the course where you’ll learn how to recognize avalanche terrain and how to companion rescue. An AST 1 is a minimum of two days with both classroom and field components. You need to take this course first and so should your friends because just one person trained in a group is not enough. Everyone in your group should take an AST 1. Recognize an AST 1 course is only the beginning—the avalanche pros will tell you avalanche training is a lifelong process.
