Companion Rescue Skills

December 17, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

$175.00

Crucial skills that all winter backcountry recreationists need.

Refresh your backcountry knowledge and put your skills to the test.

The goal of every backcountry trip is to avoid being caught in an avalanche. But are you prepared if it happens?

In this one-day course you will recap key learnables from your AST 1 and delve deeper into Companion Rescue Skills. You will learn the latest techniques on how to respond to a backcountry avalanche: step up your transceiver searching skills, learn advanced probing and shovelling techniques and how to deal with complex rescue emergencies from Whitewater’s Snow Safety personnel.

Don’t get caught out – sharpen your skills and be self-reliant with the Companion Rescue Skills course.

You must have completed Avalanche Skills Training 1 in order to book the Companion Rescue Skills course.
