    What a worthwhile class. Especially for people interested in snowboarding the backcountry.

    I convinced a friend of mine to do it last year. He was not happy when the first day in the classroom was a deep powder day. When he got back to the hotel we found out our other friend who he would have been riding with was caught in a big slide and totally buried. Luckily he got out unscathed but shaken. My friend who did the course was thankful as it was highly likely he would have been caught in the slide as well. More here on the story
