How to Get Into Backcountry Skiing and Snowboarding
At Weston, we realize taking the first steps into the backcountry can be daunting. The most important piece will be finding a guide operation to pursue your avalanche education and take your AIARE 1 or equivalent (AST 1 in Canada). We want to make sure that you feel empowered and educated to do so safely. Within this page, you'll find a number of resources including a brief overview of beginning steps to take that will help you gear up and get prepared, as well as ongoing educational seminars to help you build your skills over time.
