Every year, avalanches are one of the leading causes of death among backcountry enthusiasts. Our home turf, Colorado, consistently leads the nation in avalanche fatalities. If you are a backcountry skier, splitboarder, snowshoer, snowmobiler, mountaineer, ice climber or anyone else who is planning on spending time in high, snowy country, you need to be prepared. Avalanches don’t discriminate.

In this online avalanche awareness class, our expert guides give an introduction to how avalanches happen, what they look like, how to avoid them, what avalanche safety gear you need and how to gain the skills and knowledge needed to make good decisions in the backcountry. This is a great first step in avalanche education and doubles as a regular refresher course. 

Our instructors are certified by the American Avalanche Institute to teach avalanche courses, and they also spend some 300 days a year guiding and recreating in the field—they know snow from an academic and practical perspective, and they are excited to share their knowledge with you.

For this season, our friends at Backcountry Access, Dynafit, Rab, SCARPA, & CAMP have sponsored this online course, allowing you to get access for FREE! Start or refresh your education today!

Meeting location:

Online! Any device with internet access.


If you’d like a live webinar presentation tailored to your company or organization, please contact or call us at 720-387-8944. This is NOT a replacement for a formal avalanche training course with real practice in the field.

  • Weather considerations

  • Trip planning and preparation

    This is a great informative course to get the psyche going for winter season.

    I understand now how I have probably been inches from death previously and basically got lucky that I haven’t had a serious incident. I cannot wait to use the knowledge from the course to stay safe, stay informed, and stay involved.
