2021-2022 – Avalanche Training Schedule

NOTE: Zacs Tracs crew have decided to postpone INDOOR classroom sessions until the 2022-23 season.

ONLINE AST1 Classroom content for 2021-22 can be accessed through our partners at Hangfire Avalanche Training.

Zacs is still offering OUTDOOR AST1 Field Sessions in Valemount with our Zacs Tracs Field Instructors and in Golden and Revelstoke with Trigger Point/Hangfire Instructors. If you still have a field credit, now is the time to book it and complete your AST1 certificate!
