As part of the process to become British Mountain Guides as well as Mountaineering Instructors, it is essential that we know about avalanche awareness and stay on top on current thinking and techniques from the experts. So this is one course I never get tired of going to. I tend to participate in an avalanche course every year and each one is different. Unfortunately there was no interesting snow too look at but the class room session was useful and has armed me with some new methods in teaching and information sharing. The course was funded by the Chris Walker Memorial Trust.
