MAG’s Level 1 Avalanche Course is for skiers and snowboarders looking to gain the skills and knowledge for safe backcountry travel. Our Level 1 Avalanche Course follows national guidelines set by the American Avalanche Association (AAA); including our instructors’ credentials, material covered, duration, and classroom/field components. Our Level 1 Course is designed to provide students with the knowledge to confidently pursue backcountry ski terrain. After completion of our L1 Course, you will receive a card from MAG that lists your name, dates of course, & instructors’ names. As a AAA recognized educator, your completion of our L1 course will be accepted by other avalanche educators if you wish to pursue your avalanche education to the Level 2, Pro 1, or Pro 2 levels.
