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.
The best way to become a backcountry skier is to take a backcountry skiing course. The ski touring course we offer in the Crystal Mountain backcountry, just under 2 hours from Seattle, will teach you how to plan and execute your own backcountry adventure. We would like to encourage you to combine the ski touring course with one of our AIARE Level 1 courses.
