    I'll be back in Jindabyne in 2015 for my 5th season of providing AST Level 1 avalanche courses in Australia. Next season I'll offer 4 courses, with a discount for weekday sessions.

    All details can be found here:

    Customer Testimonials can be found here:

    By the time next season arrives I'll have taught 50 avalanche courses. Via these courses I'm looking forward to helping some of you enjoy the freedom and happiness that can be found safely in the backcountry.

    cheers

    Hi guys, thank you for the interest. I'll only be proving courses from Jindabyne, sorry to let you down. I get consistent feedback regarding the well organised, professional and energetic nature of my courses and I believe that a narrower and well planned focus helps me to achieve that required high level of service, rather than spreading myself around too much. Quality over quantity is one of my guidelines. I understand if NSW is inconvenient for you, but it would be great if you came. Each year I get people fly in from as far as WA and Qld. So a trip from Victoria isn't impossible. :)

    Also, sorry for my very slow reply, I have been in the mountains for quite a while.
