They have an extremely knowledgeable team and can educate you on avalanche safety and backcountry travel. From a short day tour to a multi-day expedition they are equipped with the skills to make it happen.”— Kevin Roemer
“Just completed a terrific AIARE 1 course. Instructors Matt and Kam were kind, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. They did an excellent job of fostering a welcoming and caring learning environment and most of the learning was student-driven and hands on. I left feeling more competent and confident in my ability to recognize and manage risk in avalanche terrain. 10/10 recommend!”— Zachary Conrad
