Worth the money! I didn't know anything about avalanches and this course was really helpful understanding the risks that could be up there! This was just a basic course but still a lot of important information that everybody should be aware of. Thank you again!

A really great Course which gives you the understanding that backcountry skiing can be dangerous and that being informed is extremely important. I'm looking forward to taking the next step in understanding in a 4 day course next year. Thanks Team.
