The festival program has a strong focus on helping you to access the skills and knowledge you need to travel safely in the mountains.
Our friends at Alpine Access Australia are the official provider of avalanche courses during the festival. They are offering two day AST level 1 courses before the festival. The courses feature a day of learning indoors and a day in the field. They provide skills and knowledge to help keep you safe in the backcountry. If you’re planning to ski/ride any steeper areas in Australia or anywhere out of resort overseas, you really should do an AST 1 course.
They have now offered a course which will happen immediately after the festival, on Monday and Tuesday September 9 and 10.
