The STA 1 online course is the ideal way to start learning about safety in snowy terrain.
Learn to recognize avalanche terrain, to correctly interpret and assess an avalanche danger bulletin and to manage risk with the help of the Avaluator v2.0. We will also introduce you to the 3×3 method for the evaluation and management of snow, terrain and the group.
In this course we include the theoretical knowledge that is taught in the Avalanche Canada courses (the most prestigious organization in the world in avalanche training and management). It can be complemented with a 2-day practical course to validate the concepts learned and develop avalanche rescue techniques.
This course, which includes the theoretical part of STA1, is essential to move around the winter mountains and with it you will obtain a B4Experience certificate. To obtain the STA1 by Avalanche Canada, you must also complete the second practical and face-to-face part of the course. Doing the STA 1 course is just the beginning, professionals insist that avalanche training is a lifelong process, you always have to learn, since “AVALANCHES” are a complicated world.
We recommend that the course should be taken by all people who move through snowy terrain because it is not enough for a single person in a group to have this knowledge.
