1. Which course should I sign up for, AST Level 1 or 2?
You should start by taking the AST 1. It is a prerequisite for the AST 2. If you took the older RAC course and have stayed active in avalanche education, you’re probably ready for the AST 2. If you’re not sure, please contact the instructor.
2. What is the AST2+?
Keith runs week-long avalanche courses at various backcountry lodges in British Columbia. This is the finest way to hone your ski touring skills, under the watchful eye of an instructor. All of the curriculum from AST2 is covered, plus you have three additional days of ski touring with other students. You will also get individualized and group feedback throughout the course.
3. What’s the minimum/maximum number of people?
Minimum class size is usually 5 students. Maximum is 8 students.
4. If we have a group interested, can we pick our own dates?
It may be possible to schedule another course by contacting Keith to arrange dates.
5. Can we run a course with Cat Skiing Access?
Yes, for an additional fee, the field component can utilize catskiing for the full day.
6. What about a Corporate Group?
We can also organize a package for a Corporate Group. Options include: lodging, team building, avalanche education, cat skiing, and lift-service skiing.
