A NZ Mountain Saftey Council (MSC) accredited course
Avalanche Awareness for Skiers, Snowboarders, Hikers & Climbers
The Aspiring Guides Avalanche Awareness course is an introductory short course that should be your first step to understanding avalanches. On this course you will focus on trip preparation, route selection, decision making and rescue skills. It will suit people interested in travelling out of bounds at ski areas for ski touring as well those who may encounter low-angled snow and alpine terrain as part of a tramping trip, hunting or other outdoor experience.
If you are wondering about taking a more advanced avalanche course, this is the perfect way to introduce yourself to the concepts that you will need to know.
