All incoming students are required to have taken an AIARE Level 1, or formally recognized introductory avalanche course such as AST Level 1 or ISTA Level 1, within the last 5 years. The WAC backcountry class will reinforce and build on this foundation, giving students an opportunity to apply their avalanche knowledge when planning a tour and while in the backcountry.
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
