AST 2 Rockies Course? Grab a Seat.
Book your seat today on our AST 2 Rockies Course. The Cloud Nine Rockies AST 2 Course spans 4 consecutive days with the townsites of both Banff and Lake Louise as a hub for Field Days. The AST 2 Curriculum is designed for Intermediates looking to access more complex terrain environments, and those wanting the skill sets required to make accurate assessments of risk in more complex snowpack environments. Develop your understanding of the theories related to "confidence" and "uncertainty" in decision your making, and learn tactics to be able to safely make exceptions to the given Hazard Ratings and Problems listed in the Public Avalanche Bulletin, in addition to the ATES Ratings for your proposed trips.
This AST 2 will set you on a course to begin to effectively manage personal and group exposure to risk, giving you the skills you require to access and explore more complicated Backcountry environments post course.
Our Field Days are typically based from the snow hubs of Banff and Lake Louise. Objectives on the southern end of the Icefields Parkway, routes centrally located near Field BC, as well as days along HWY 93S in Yoho National Park are all common objectives during this AST 2 week.
