For anyone getting into the exciting world of ski touring and off-piste skiing, then taking an introductory avalanche safety course is a must.

Our Avalanche Level 1 course – set in the beautiful backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains – exceeds the guidelines set by the American Avalanche Association and combines classroom learning with in-the-field experience.

Over the course of our time together, we will go over the fundamentals of what avalanches are and why they occur. We will also go over how to access local avalanche bulletins and learn to understand information that they provide as well as learn about avalanche safety gear.

We will also learn basic avalanche rescue techniques and how to identify avalanche-prone terrain too.

Once we are done in the classroom, we will then head out onto the slopes and put some of what we've learned to the test. In the heart of the stunningly scenic Wasatch Range, we will make some key observations about snowpack and weather; practice the appropriate snowpack tests; and choose terrain on which to ski that is appropriate for current avalanche conditions.

We will also put some of the basic rescue and avalanche avoidance techniques that we learned in the classroom to the test.

By the time you finish this avalanche safety course, you will have a basic understanding and awareness of how to avoid and prepare yourself in case of an avalanche and will be ready to go on and take more advanced courses.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this informative and practical 3-day level 1 avalanche safety course.

If you like the look of this trip, but are looking for something a bit more advanced, then I think you may also enjoy my 3-day ski mountaineering course, also in the Wasatch Range!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
