Uncertainty and Confidence in the Backcountry
If we enter the backcountry enough, we will run into situations where we will question ourselves, our partners, or the natural world. This is an experiential course that will increase your self-awareness, give you skills to practice, and open up greater potential to be in productive conversations with partners and friends during backcountry ski experiences. Participants should have taken, at a minimum, a Level 1 avalanche course. The workshops are geared towards individuals that have years of backcountry experience, have made mistakes, and want to learn how to better mitigate and understand their risk traveling in the backcountry during winter.
Participants will gain new skills, tools, and/or knowledge relevant to decision-making in backcountry avalanche terrain.
The Going Deep series will challenge assumptions, re-visit old concepts from new angles, and provide interactive experiences to grow participants' understanding of avalanche phenomena and best practices in planning and executing backcountry outings.
Proceeds from the Going Deep Series go directly to NWAC to support their mission of Avalanche Education
