Snowmobile AST Courses Overview

Riding safely in the mountains is ‘heads up hockey’ and life long learning that comes with training and experience.  Since 2009 we have provided avalanche training to over a thousand people, helping you build experience on a solid foundation of knowledge and skills.

The AST 1 course is 2 parts, a class session and a field day.  Take them together or separate, just make sure you take both parts!  You will notice (in our course calendar below) we bring the AST 1 class session through Alberta in November.
