UVOC AST1 Mount Washington
The Avalanche Skills Training One is an introductory avalanche course designed for individuals with little to no avalanche related experience. Students will learn to recognize avalanche terrain, gain the skills to initiate and manage a self rescue, have a basic understanding of how weather contributes to avalanche hazard, be able to understand and interpret avalanche bulletins and the hazard scale, be able to interpret and utilize the Avaluator card and learn basic analysis of layers in the snowpack. This is a two day course with one evening session. IAG courses operate from our slope side classroom making access to field sessions quick and easy. On our full field day we provide you with a lift ticket to facilitate quick and easy access up into the snow thus maximizing time spent looking at and travelling through real avalanche terrain.
