The mission of the Alaska Avalanche School is to provide exceptional experience-based snow avalanche safety education to all users of the mountain environment.
Alaska Avalanche School is a 501 (c) (3) Not for Profit Public Charity.
Your donations and support help us accomplish our mission every day.
Please support avalanche education in Alaska by enrolling in one of our classes or making a fully deductible donation today.
Avalanches are a major component in the mountains of Alaska. Most avalanches affecting people, are triggered by people. Therefore, the goal of AAS education is to increase backcountry users awareness and reduce exposure to avalanche conditions. Since proficiency is born out of experience, AAS emphasizes intensive, hands-on field training at all of our major workshops. Students will have the opportunity to participate in small group sessions focusing on snow science, avalanche environment detection, route selection, and rescue scenarios.
