Dear Friends of ASI,


Hopefully WINTER IS HERE!:
It is clearing right now. We got alot of precipitation, not all snow except for the higher elevations. Sugar Bowl is opening this Saturday for the season!

We are getting so excited for Winter and our Avalanche courses are already filling up! AIARE Avalanche Courses



INTRO TO BACKCOUNTRY Ski or Spiltboard:
We have combined the courses this year, so you can come on Alpine touring, telemark or spiltboard!

We love to ski the backcountry! This is the ASI workhorse course to get you away from the lifts and into the backcountry. This one-day seminar is perfect for alpine skiers & rider who want to learn to use convertible touring bindings or spiltboard and telemark skiers ready to ski the backcountry.

AIARE AVALANCHE EDUCATION:
The ASI AIARE Avalanche Level 1 has become the cornerstone of the winter program. Much more than just an avalanche course, the curriculum that now has evolved for AIAREover 30 years ties together many aspects of backcountry travel and related skills to help your well being in avalanche terrain.

These programs are taught by an elite group of highly experienced
Ski Mountaineering Guides. They are passionate about the snow and your learning of the snow craft. All the knowledge comes back to practical, "real time" application of when we are out there in the snow.



AIARE Avalanche Level 1 & Level 1 PLUS
Signup early, they all fill-up fast! December is an excellent time to get your education in. It doesn't take much snow to run a great course. Then, you're set for the rest of the season, when the free-riding really gets good.
