Hangfire Avalanche Training was developed out of the sheer need for an Avalanche Skills Training (AST) course that was snowmobile specific. Our vision was to develop an Avalanche Course that was rider orientated, with emphasis on safe terrain negotiation, rescue techniques, and hazard awareness on a snowmobile.
Upon completion of our avalanche course you will have the skills necessary to perform a lead role in a rescue, be aware of hazards, gather information on safe trip planning and have a basic knowledge of avalanche formation and release.
You also receive a Hangfire Avalanche Training AST level 1 certificate acknowledging you have completed your Avalanche Skills Training.
For those who would like to split their course over two separate dates or locations, Hangfire Training offers you the option to take the classroom session first and your field day at a different time. Find out more about our Classroom Session and Field Session.
