If you’ve done an AST1 avalanche course in the past and want to brush up on your avalanche skills before the Spring touring season or getting into the backcountry overseas – Alpine Access Australia is offering an AST1 Refresher. It will happen the day before the Victorian backcountry festival starts.
It consists of a day in the backcountry, with a hands-on approach covering
- multiple burial companion rescue,
- terrain and route selection,
- snowpack analysis, weather and safe backcountry choices.
At Mt Hotham, Friday 6th September.
Details, gear list and bookings available here.
