It will be a valuable investment in your mountain safety training and will significantly increase your avalanche knowledge and experience in a fun and enjoyable way.
The course includes four days of instruction with an ACMG guide and certified avalanche forecaster, 4 days accommodation at the luxurious Journeyman Lodge, snowcat/snowmobile transfers, food while at the lodge, Staying Alive in Avalanche Terrain book by Bruce Tremper, Avaluator 2.0, field book, and a course certificate.
