Dear Friends of ASI:
Now snow high and low!!!:
We running everything as normal, finally. Come join us!
By now we all realize a good level 1 avalanche course is imperative for everyone going out into the backcountry with snow around.
The ASI/AIARE Level 1 has become on of the conrnerstones of the ASI winter program. For over 30 years ASI has been forward thinking with avalanche education embedding a philosophy that judgment-based decision-making can be taught in a way that is appropriate. Our courses are taught by experienced ski mountaineering guides making profesional decisions in the field daily.

This is the best way to update your previous Level 1 Avalanche Course. We will present annual information updates including new technology and techniques along with new resources for information to keep you current.
The field travel portion of the course presents realistic decision making excercises along with a valuable rescue practice drill including full-scene management with transciever, probe and shovel. We all need to practice!

SUGAR BOWL BACKCOUNTRY:
Our workhorse winter program, also known as "Sidecountry", offers endless acres of backcountry terrain off the backsides of Sugar Bowl's summits. Tactfully combining lift use with pleasant uphills (using touring bindings and climbing skins), we connect fantastic downhill runs throughout the day.
This is not only a great day to practice backcountry skills, but also perfect for return skiers and splitboarders to get more of "the goods". This is an action-packed, super fun program that always leaves skiers and snowboarders smiling at the end of the day!
