      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Avalanche Training for Backcountry?

Recommended Posts

IMO, this is the best pagetop. Better than the American or Canadian pagetops... And I've taken all the pagetop courses... I even have third party pagetop timers to back me up.

Nothing like avalanche training to bring out a good pissing match. It's an interesting phenomenon.

It is. You should try decanting it as a new weapon of evil - maybe crossbreed the strain with some beacon arguments and a little AT vs. Tele action. Add into it a health sense of Canadian inferiority and you'd have a real weapon on your hands. Arguments without data. Woohoo!

 

 

I'm bettter than you!

The American Alpine Institute (out of Bellingham) offers quite a few Level 1 classes each season, they also do backcountry ski courses.

The best avalanche training is to go out backcountry snowboarding or skiing and practice riding them down. Once you ride a few big ones they're not so bad anymore... Almost pleasant and enjoyable with a nice mild adrenaline rush.
