What People Are Saying:

I thought this course was excellent. The content was well put together in easily digestible sections. George is a great presenter using clear and concise descriptions. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to start to study and understand skiing safely off piste.

Julie Hewison - Verbier / Val d'Isere

I really liked how the course was broken down in to a modules that I could work through in my own time. It also provided structure to the learning and teaching. The video clips were well put together and the end of topic assessments were relevant and focused.

Gavin Carruthers - Partner & Instructor, British Backcountry

" The online course ticked all of the boxes for me. The content is logically presented and explained without being overly complex but was flexible enough to accommodate people of different Mountain experience. The use of excellent video content gives participants an opportunity to observe, comment and learn from real life Avalanche situations. The content is appropriate for both people with little or no previous winter touring experience as well as those who want a refresher of their existing knowledge."

Keith Geddes - Instructor & mountain Leader, Scotland

"Thanks George for a really enjoyable, well structured and presented course. The balance of photos, video and words made it super interesting and easy to digest.

Tim Scott - Les Gets Snowsports

"George has taken a complicated subject matter and split it into digestible bite size pieces that are easy to understand. The amazing pics and vids keep you interested, and the whole thing is just super slick and really thought about. Everyone going off piste needs this course!"

Paul Wagstaffe - L4 Instructor

Doing a mountain safety refresher is probably the most important CPD you can do. After doing numerous CPDs in all aspects of skiing I found this one the most useful and informative. This is really well put together and I found new ways of planning and decision making for off-piste skiing
