Bridging the gap: The importance of mentorship and continued education in the mountains

Short and sweet, this video leans on Backcountry Access ambassador AJ Appezzato to discuss the importance of mentorship and continued education in the backcountry. There’s a common misconception that completing your Level 1 avalanche safety course means you’re set for life with this training—but this is not the case. Staying safe while exploring out of bounds is a lifelong process, and finding mentors, whether those people are more experienced friends or professional guides, is imperative to your long-term safety and enjoyment of these places. Brining professional knowledge into a recreational scenario takes time, so even if you are AIARE 1 certified, consider taking the course again to refresh your knowledge.
