This seminar will teach you what conditions are required to activate an avalanche, how to use CAIC’s avalanche website, how to plan a trip during winter and NOT travel in avalanche prone conditions.
This seminar WILL NOT teach you about beacons, probes & avalanche rescue.
These subjects are taught in the AIARE Level 1 School for those who DO WANT to travel in avalanche terrain safely.
No, you don’t have to have heavy snow pack to learn how to assess avalanche terrain.
