Beginners Snow School
Submitted by craigms on Tue, 24/03/2009 - 11:27
Beginners Snow School - This teaches basic alpine skills, such as self-arrest, crampon use, step cutting and basic avalanche knowledge. Attendance on this course is compulsory for any trips above the bush line.
This is the most popular course of the year and is run during the inter-semester break.
All of the courses offered through AUTC are organized by volunteers who give their time freely. Course fees cover the costs incurred and do not make a profit. For this reason the courses at AUTC are some of the cheapest around. Although every effort is made to make the courses as safe as possible, participants undertake courses at their own risk and AUTC takes no responsibility for any accidents that may occur, although this is unlikely.
