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 is the Course Director on all courses. The 3 day courses are co-delivered by Iain and a UIAGM High Mountain Guide.
