Getting excited for winter? A white blanket of snow fell this morning in Canmore covering the streets and peaks with the promise of another fantastic snow year! While this short storm is melting fast, everyone here at the office started dreaming about hitting the slopes for some backcountry turns. Our first AST 1 avalanche course is now full, but there are many spots left on other courses coming up in the next few months. This is a great program to take to increase your avalanch awareness and brush up on field forcasting and terrain reading techniques. Sign up now for an early season course and you’ll feel confident and safe travelling in the backcountry for the rest of the season.
