Participant Information

This 2-day exclusive BCMC course is a skills-intensive program designed to introduce you to a variety of techniques that will give you the confidence and skills to ski some of the big-mountain terrain in the South Coast Mountains. The course is designed to give you the best combination of learning and practice in backcountry terrain.


Strong intermediate or better skiing ability with previous backcountry experience; previous Avalanche skills course (AST-1 or equivalent); course includes an overnight in the backcountry so participants should be prepared and comfortable with winter camping skills; participants are strongly encouraged to practice basic rope handling skills in advance of the field session (knots, belays, etc). When you register, a Pre-Trip Package will be sent to you detailing how to prepare for your Canada West Mountain School Ski Mountaineering course.. 

Base course Fee: $345 + GST (Special price for BCMC Members; CWMS Non-BCMC Fee: $385 + GST)
