I just finished a course with these guys. Very passionate and great instruction.
Mores Creek Summit is definitely a hidden treasure you’d get to explore as an added bonus.
Brendan Flynn - Completed Avi L1 during his first 3-days of Backcountry Skiing ever!
Chago connected sub-nanometer phenomena (shape and properties of water molecules) through millimeter scale (sintering, faceting) to explain what triggers an avalanche hundreds of meters in size. This was fascinating.
Lucy Hedges - Completed Introduction to Safe Travel In Avalanche Terrain and Avalanche Rescue Course
Chago was fun to work with and gave me instructions that made me feel confident and aware.
