"I did my AST 2 with Mountain Addicts and it was an incredible learning experience. The field days were packed with insights. Our guide (Mel) was interacting continuously, whether it be demonstrating snowpack analysis, pointing out terrain features in front of us, or constructively challenging our avalanche skills. I especially valued the encouragement to do a little homework each day by preparing the tour of the next day, applying our knowledge by writing up a concise report in a decision-making guide. At the end of the course, I felt much more confident in making decisions in navigating avalanche terrain. Would wholeheartedly recommend."
