Holiday events from Kicking Horse
Hello to all.
I'm shooting in the dark here. If you happen to be in the Kicking Horse/Golden area this New Years. Ring it in up at the ski hill. This year, once again, we are hosting a Big Air Jam. The jump is open to everyone. Free of charge. The jam starts at 7:30 and goes to 8 or later.
After Party's will be at the hill and in town.
If you are interested. Please just write in the forum or message me and I will set it up for you.
There will be more information to come. I know more stuff is happening.
Also, December 28th and 29th there will be an Avalanche Awareness course. For all those people out there who would like to get their basic knowledge and go ski the backcountry. This is the course. The 2 days cover everything you need to know. Equipment will be supplied. The cost is $200. I belive that covers lift tickets too. I'll be there.
If you can't make it for these days. Many more courses will be held throughout the season.
Once again, Pm me if you have any questions..
Happy Holidays from Mason and Kicking Horse.
Hope to see you around!

Your a fool, damn good looking one that is.
For anyone else, I believe those avalanche dates are incorrect. I'll get the dates ASAP
Pulled from the Kicking Horse website, it's the info for the avy courses.
Our Avalanche Skills Training (AST) course, offered through our Big Mountain Centre, is an excellent resource for those interested in winter backcountry recreation who haven't been formally trained about avalanche hazards.
The program is offered every second weekend throughout the ski season for only $195 per person. The AST course focuses on avalanche hazard recognition and avoidance to help participants with their own decision making in the field. It is also a prerequisite for the CAA level 1 course.
The AST course is scheduled on the following weekends during the winter of 2009/2000.
•Jan 9&10, 23&24
•Feb 06&07, Feb 20&21
•Mar 06&07, Mar 20&21
This 2 day course covers avalanche terrain recognition and avoidance, companion rescue, and how to use the Avaluator, a decision support tool. All courses are taught by professional members of the Canadian Avalanche Association and have an instructor to student ratio of 8:1.
Additional courses are available upon request. Reservations are required, call 250.439.5467 for more details.
All times are Eastern (-4)
