Vanessa was a great guide, gave us lots of information about the trees and animals. Garrett was a great fondue chef. All around a wonderful, fun day! Great value for the experience! I would do it again!

What You'll Get

Mountains are beautiful but dangerous, much like a thorny rose or a haiku composed of nuclear launch codes. Stay safe on the slopes with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $125 for a two-day avalanche-rescue-and-safety course for one (a $299 value)
  • $250 for the above course for two (a $598 value)

Conducted over one weekend at Rocky Mountain National Park and the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, the Avalanche Level 1 Experiential course reviews the essentials of staying safe in Colorado's winter backcountry. After completing eight hours of online coursework at their leisure, students undergo two days of field training in both avalanche-rescue tactics and strategies for safe snow travel. Though the course fee includes instruction and required readings, students must either provide their own equipment—such as skis, shovels, and beacons for blinding prowling yetis—or rent gear from Apex Ex for an industry-standard rate.
