2021-2022 – Avalanche Training Schedule

NOTE:  Our 2021-2022 schedule is tentative. Depending  on the extent of social restrictions in the Fall of 2021, courses may be reduced to Calgary, Edmonton and Fernie or expanded to include in Brandon, Winnipeg, Yorkton and McBride. 
(Call us if you have a group and we will work with you to schedule a custom course.)

We have received a few questions about last minute refunds and cancellations due to COVID.  We have always offered an Emergency Medical Cancellation Insurance.  In light of COVID we strongly recommend that you consider this coverage.  CLICK HERE for details.
