    Companion Rescue


    Feel more confident with your rescue skills and equipment. Our one day companion rescue course will teach you the ins & outs of your rescue gear.



    Our goal is to reach a point where our rescue skills are like reflexes. Our brain knows what to do & we can effectively work through the steps as quickly as possible.



    Our companion rescue course will teach you more advanced rescue skills as well as focus on dialing in your current skill set learned in the AST 1.


    Grab your crew, register & practice together. Knowing each others strengths & how to work together as a team is so important when building your backcountry dream team.
