Stop hand.png Old Trip
This is the sign up and organization page for an old trip. It already happened. Please do not sign up for it.


It is a good idea for anyone who is interested in travelling in the back country to take an avalanche course. Avalanche course students learn about some snow science basics, terrain, route finding, snow stability testing and rescue.

Spaces are limited, and it fills up quickly, so make sure to sign up early if you want a spot. This course is a heck of a lot cheaper than than taking a course open to the public.

This years course is being done by Canada West Mountain School

The course will be exactly the same as this one

It is required that students read the material from CWMS as well as go through the online course before the classroom session.

The advantages of going on the only Seymour course instead of Seymour/Whistler course:
Easier transportation
Cheaper if you don't have a Whistler pass
Better terrain if you just started skiing
