The Splitboard HQ AST 1 course is run over 2 days (or 2 evenings and a full day). The theory sessions are set up within the framework of the CAC with a focus on getting people ‘hands on’ as much as possible with equipment and the concepts that will be taught on the field day.
The field day is an introduction to being in the backcountry, again, within the scope of the CAC AST 1 program our certified instructors will start to introduce the concepts of using terrain to minimize hazard, basic snow stability tests, travel tips and more.
Our AST 1 programs are suitable for snowboarders on splitboards (discount rentals available) and skiers on touring setups.
At the end of the course you will be awarded a CAA AST 1 certification.
