Avalanche Skills Training

Avalanche Skills Training

Safety first, but the fun is number one!

  • "Pursued the AST-1 course with KBG based on recommendations from a few friends and they exceeded my expectations. The online training course was excellent preparation before two full days in the field. It allows you to learn the basics of avalanche safety at your own pace while using real-world examples of situations you may encounter in the field..."

  • "We completed the Managing Avalanche Terrain course with Judson Wright today, and it was phenomenal. Judson is highly experienced and spared no detail when sharing his knowledge with us. Doing the online learning instead of a class room was ideal. We had a huge day out in the field and although pit digging and companion rescue wasn't on the curriculum, we did it anyway. Thanks Judson!!"

  • "I recently took the AST-1 course with KBG. It was a very professional and informative course with lots of time in the field and a well designed online primer. Would highly recommend this outfit for anybody thinking of getting their AST-1."
