The AST 2 Golden & Rogers Pass 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, advanced route and trip planning, and learn tactics to be able to safely make exceptions to the given Hazard Ratings and Problems as 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, access the lines you've been eyeballing for at least a few years now, and give you the skills you require to access and explore more complex Backcountry environments post course in these bigger ranges.
Our Field Days are based from Golden, with objectives to the east near Field BC, the Purcells accessed directly from Golden, and the iconic Rogers Pass venues to the west in the Selkirks.
