Women's specific courses

In a male-dominated industry, Stay Wild offers exclusive women's-only classes in addition to our co-ed courses & camps. As a female-led company, our instructors have been the only chick in the shred crew or avy safety course way too often. While we love the men that come out for our co-ed camps, there’s something magical about like-minded ladies learning together and having a killer day on the mountain.

Backcountry Refresher

Are you planning to spend more time in the backcountry this shred season?

There’s no better place to wait out a pandemic than in the wild. If you want to sharpen your backcountry skills before you head out this season, consider taking our online Backcountry Refresher course before the snow falls!

Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 Courses

Stay Wild is pleased to offer new ways to learn with us this winter that will keep you safe from avalanches, virus’, murder hornets, and whatever else 2020 might send our way.

We’re stoked to offer the in-class portion of our Avalanche Safety Training 1 certification class as an online course for the first time this year.

After you’ve finished the online course, you can complete the AST 1 field day portion in Golden, Fernie, Kelowna, or Revelstoke. As always, field days classes are available as both co-ed + women’s only. We always run these classes in small groups and with just a few of us out in the mountains, physical distancing is easily done.
