AST 1 Day 1 Talk the Talk

Today was Day 1 of AST1 which took place from 9:00am to 4:30pm in the classroom.  I came away feeling overwhelmed with information and understanding why it is so important to have a day in the field to put all this knowledge to practice.

I never dreamed evaluating conditions could be so complicated!  We learned about everything from the types of avalanches, triggers, analyzing terrain, snow layers, to understanding bulletins, group safety, how to search, how to rescue, equipment used to search and rescue and so on and so on and so on.

At the end of the day, after seeing everything we saw today, learning everything we learned today, I came away with an unequivocal confirmation that I don't ever care to be nor do I want to be anywhere near any kind of avalanche terrain and will do everything possible in my power to make sure that I am safe at all times!

BUT!  
Things happen in life!  
Be Prepared!
Tomorrow we Walk the Talk!
