Our avalanche courses follow the American Avalanche Association guidelines. Why? The North Americans are far in advance of us Europeans in terms of avalanche education. Their syllabus is tried and tested and gives you the knowledge, tools and systems to enhance your safety, decision making and enjoyment in the mountains.
American Avalanche Association (A3) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to professional excellence in avalanche safety, education and research in the United States. We bring this expertise to you in Europe.
Iain Menmuir trained at the American Avalanche Institute, is a professional member of the American Avalanche Association and an IASI certified ski instructor. Paul Swail is UIAGM High Mountain Guide, both are based in the Chamonix area full-time.
"...We feel more capable after this course, and a lot more aware of what we don't know and don't control, and I think this training changed our lives.
Thank you, Iain and Paul, for the amazing 3 days.
