Regardless of whether you are ski touring, split-boarding, mountaineering or snowshoeing, it is critical that your #1 objective is to return safely. That means equipping yourself with the knowledge and skills to explore wisely. The AdventureSmart website (www.adventuresmart.ca) offers a wealth of helpful tips and guidelines on a variety of topics ranging from activity specific information to trip planning* and knowledge based programs.
As a starting point specifically for winter backcountry pursuits, we recommend taking the time to review this excellent KNOW BEFORE YOU GO resource page prepared by Backcountry Lodges of BC. It's loaded with pre-trip guides, resources and safety advice. You can also look into the multitude of AST courses being offered by region, here >>
