Pro Guiding Service offers a variety of courses designed to help you become a proficient backcountry adventurer. While they are all great stand alone courses, we strongly encourage combining the touring and mountaineering courses with the AIARE avalanche and navigation courses to give you all of the tools necessary to travel safely in the backcountry. All courses are movement based, meaning you will spend most of your time actively learning in the field, and 100% application based, meaning you will apply every concept that you are introduced to while ski touring in relevant terrain. If the offered course dates don't work for you, please call or email us for a private arrangement.
This avalanche course is geared around the backcountry splitboard user who does not have any avalanche safety training yet. This course is for splitboarders only and is taught by our splitboard instructor, Jere Burrell. It is a judgment-building course packed with information. In the AIARE Level 1, you will be introduced to topics such as mountain weather, different snow packs, tour planning, hazard recognition and evaluation, snow pack analysis, transceiver search and much more.
