Greetings Friends of ASI:
Well it is cold and clear!
We got about 5-6" this weekend and feels like winter, at lower elevation the snow has melted. This isn't the ski season we had last year, but we have snow and it is a good time to learn skills. Taking an avlanche course now is perfect, intro to backcountry either ski or splitboarding is great, advanced skiing and longer tours are not that great.
Come learn about the snow pack, avalanche rescue and other skills you should know.
ASI OFFICE :
We are here to help you!
Call anytime and Mimi with help direct you to the correct course.

SUGAR BOWL BACKCOUNTRY:
Lift Access Backcountry
Ski & board Sugar Bowl's incredible backcountry terrain on AT, telemark or splitboard with lift access along the Pacific Crest, right from the resort! This is the perfect introduction to backcountry skiing and splitboarding.
Bring your alpine boots and we'll outfit you up on the latest backcountry setup, which includes avalanche transceiver, probe, shovel and pack. After we gear up, we'll use Sugar Bowl's lifts to gain access to their amazing backcountry terrain for a day of descents and touring you'll never forget.

AIARE AVALANCHE LEVEL 1:
This is a thorough, "stand alone" course that emphasizes decision making skills. It is much more than just an avalanche course. It introduces many safety and risk management techniques just like those used by professional AMGA certified and IFMGA Internationally Licensed Mountain Guides, but are useful to recreational skiers as well.
