Avalanche Skills Training

Living in Calgary I am fortunate enough to be close to the mountains. Snowboarding is a definitely passion of mine and I try to get out as much as possible, this past weekend I managed to get out to the Sunshine Village backcountry and take a course for avalanche skills training.

I had an awesome time and managed to learn quite a bit about causes of avalanches, avoidance of avalanches and avalanche rescue.

If anyone is interested in riding backcountry runs at some point in their life, I would definitely recommend taking an avalanche course before you head out.
