If i'm not mistaken I think the OP just wants to see variations on the TYPE of knife he's depicted. Contact us today to create your custom course, tour or expedition!Canada West Mountain School specializes in private, customized training and Guided trips. Our popular AST-2 course over 2 weekends allows you to track changes in the snowpack over an 8-day period. Canada West Mountain School is an Authorized AST ProviderDates: Conducted over 2 separate Weekends, each with 2 days of instruction.
Please note that the first day of the AST-2 Advanced Avalanche course includes a morning theory session conducted in North Vancouver, BC and afternoon field session conducted on Mt Seymour.DescriptionThe Canada West AST-2 Avalanche Skills course is for skiers and boarders who seek out adventures that require travel in Challenging or Complex Terrain. The primary focus will be on a developing and implementing a system for assessing and evaluating potential avalanche slopes in the backcountry in regards to the hazard that they present.
At these class session you will also receive instructions for the specific meeting points for the remaining field days of your course, as these locations will be decided based on current conditions.
Students are reminded to plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to the course sessions, to allow for traffic delays, poor road conditions, parking, etc. All CWMS staff also attend regular Industry training and have advanced 1st aid training, and many of the Instructors in our Avalanche Training program are also professional Guides certified through the ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides). Visit Guides and Instructors Page for complete details and background on each of our Guide Team.ItineraryThis course is designed to enable students with a solid understanding of Avalanche Safety basic principles to build on their existing knowledge.
One 5 hour classroom theory session is held on the first day of the course.The afternoon of Day-1 is a short practical field session. You will require an Avalanche Safety kit (avalanche transceiver (beacon), collapsible avalanche shovel, and a probe). Weather conditions in the mountains are constantly changing and we have developed many back-up options to accommodate poor weather.
DescriptionThe emphasis of our Intermediate Mountaineering program is to help participants develop and refine their technical alpine climbing skills.
Visit Guides and Instructors Page for complete details and background on each of our Guide Team.ItineraryThe following is a brief possible schedule for the Canada West Mountain School 5-day Intermediate Mountaineering course. You will receive a comprehensive package after you have registered, detailing all of the critical areas to plan and prepare for. Skills covered: introductions, course objectives, gear review, communication, safety awareness, logistics planning. Skills covered: Application of all relevant skills while climbing a peak with a variety of terrain options. Skills covered: Navigation, map reading, pacing, group management, route finding, hazard awareness. Plan on using the same personal clothing and camping equipment that you would take on an overnight backpacking trip. You will be working each day in and on snow, so it is important to have proper boots suitable for snow travel.
Your first goal is to determine what you will be using your boots for after the course, where you will get the most use of them.
You will next want to consider the type of "welt" (the lip on the toe and heel of the boot). After you determine the general style of boot, you will need to try a lot of different boots on, and go with the one that has the best fit. For Canada West Mountaineering courses, any boot that accepts crampons and is designed for mountaineering or light mountaineering will be fine.

Lastly, please make sure that you spend enough time in the boots to break them in before your course or trip!
Canada West Mountain School will supply all specialised technical climbing safety equipment (with the exception of Crampons). You will need to supply your own personal clothing, boots, crampons and overnight camping gear (see Equipment, above).
Weather conditions in the mountains are constantly changing and are one of the many facets of Alpine climbing that mountaineers need to contend with. The best way to ensure that weather does not take away from your course is to be well prepared with good quality gear. Our Mountaineering and Alpine-based courses are conducted at a variety of Alpine locations in the Coast Mountains of BC. A typical day on our Mountaineering courses begins with a departure from camp at 0800 and a return to camp around 5 pm. We can do this without going on a diatribe about the definition of what a survival knife actually is. We work extensively with schools, clubs, companies and individuals to arrange everything from 1-day class sessions to International expeditions. The foundation of avalanche safety is terrain, and our unique format gets you exploring terrain in 4 alpine locations including the Duffey Lake region, Whistler, Blackcomb and Seymour. For the same AST-2 course conducted over a continuous 4-day block, please go to AST-2 (4-day course). This course is designed to enable students with a solid understanding of Avalanche Safety principles to build on their existing knowledge. This is not meant to be a forecasting course, nor a course that dwells on the scientific collection and recording of snowpack and weather observations. For the Vancouver-based courses, the Day-1 afternoon field sessions are typically held in the backcountry behind Mount Seymour, though this may change and is dependent on weather and snow conditions.
The field sessions will start promptly at the times indicated - latecomers will risk missing the field sessions as once the group has departed there are no options to join them in the field at a later time. Additionally, Canada West Mountain School staff are dedicated educators who are experienced in teaching these skills and conducting well run, professional courses. The following 3 days are held at held at a variety of locations to experience different snowpack's and conditions. In addition, everyone needs to be fully prepared for spending extended periods of time out in winter conditions. If you require lift access , please contact our office to purchase a Backcountry Lift Pass.
All field locations are chosen based on the best current conditions for the AST-2 course objectives.
You will spend 5 days in a low-ratio group learning and challenging yourself in alpine terrain. Private dates also available, contact us for details on arranging a Custom Intermediate Mountaineering course. Previous outdoor rock climbing experience and basic rope management skills, should be comfortable top-rope climbing 5.8. Many different variables (such as weather, snow conditions, group experience levels, etc) influence the actual day-to-day schedule and the order in which topics are presented, so the following should be considered a general outline only.
Your Base Camp on the Mountaineering courses will often be in an alpine or sub-alpine location and exposed to the weather.

Students are asked to supply their own basic slings and cords, as these items may experience wear on each course. If you will use them for a lot of backpacking trips, a boot with a more flexible sole is ideal. A boot that fits well is more important than almost any other factor, as long as it is a decently built boot suitable for the activity. Even many sturdier backpacking boots are fine as long as they are reasonably stiff and can accept a crampon. All the skills on our mountaineering courses can be taught in virtually any conditions, without compromising the safety or integrity of the course. Specific locations are chosen close to the course date, based on current conditions and weather forecasts.
Of course, this will vary due to weather and daily objectives, but plan on 8 hours away from camp each day. My goal here was not to determine the proper size just wanted to explore what was being used in the large knife catagory. Taught by Professional Members of the Canadian Avalanche Association and industry experts, our AST-2 is designed for skiers and boarders seeking adventures that require travel in Challenging or Complex Terrain. Rather, the course will emphasize the practical collection and analysis of relevant data that an average backcountry skier would be able to use as the basis for making their decisions regarding travel in avalanche terrain.
Each field session will be preceded with a 1 hour morning theory session and a 1 hour afternoon follow up class session. Canada West Mountain School has Avalanche Safety Kits available for rent, please book this at time of registration as they are often booked out by the time the course runs. This course is for climbers with previous mountaineering background who want to challenge themselves and improve their skills for bigger alpine climbing routes. Each course will include multiple summit attempts in order to allow participants to apply skills in a real setting.LocationThis course is conducted wholly in an Alpine region to give you the best opportunity to learn and practice Alpine Climbing skills. Be aware that this is a trade-off for better security while kicking steps and travelling on steeper snow, where a rigid boot performs better.
For general snow use, a “strap on” style of crampon is fine and can go onto any boot, regardless of welt. If you have a smaller one, what the heck post it, I am open to anything and glad that you want participate. The actual location of the Alpine portion of this course will be decided one week prior to the course start date, as there are many variables that need to be considered, including weather, snow conditions, previous experience of the group, and road conditions.
Another very popular crampon system is a “Hybrid strap-on”, that uses a step-in style for the heel and a strap-on style for the toe. Great for climbers looking to increase their technical skills and knowledge through practical experience in an alpine environment.
This Hybrid style only requires a heel welt, and is one of the most popular systems for general mountaineering and on our Mountaineering courses. All are certified by the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides (ACMG) and each one has a passion for teaching that will inspire you in your climbing pursuits. If you are looking at more technical mountaineering and ice climbing, a boot with a heel and toe welt is a good idea as it will allow a technical “step-in” style of crampon attachment, much simpler and more secure for technical climbing (though these boots are often more rigid and less comfortable for extended walking).
