Great Course
Reviewed by Rowan Palmer from Geneva

Last weekend I took the Foundation and Progression courses, which were both fantastic. Both days were packed with information, practical skills, and great powder turns. Stuart was an excellent instructor, guide, and fun guy to ski with. I would highly recommend Avalanche Academy to anybody who is even thinking about chasing the powder off piste.

Great Course. Highly recommended
Reviewed by Scott from Aigle, Switzerland

Just back from a weekend with Stuart for the Avalanche Foundation and Progression courses. Two full-on days packed with learning, really useful advice and some great off-piste guided riding. Would definitely recommend the course if you want to ski or board off-piste and keep yourself and others safe.

Again, super
Reviewed by elke hottentot from geneva

I took the Basic Course on Sat Feb 20th followed directly by the Avalanche Progression Course. My review of this second course is again very positive and is the same as my review of the Basic Course: taking a class with Stuart is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant - at least, that was my experience. His course is packed with lots of factual and anecdotal information, taught in a serious manner but somehow kept playful and allows for hands-on practice. Highly recommended! Elke

There's always more to learn
Reviewed by Cath Noble from Geneva

I'd done the Foundation course the day before, so was curious as to what the Progression would teach us.

Our snow & environment awareness got cranked up yet another level... Analysis of terrain, planning your routes, looking at slopes which had already avalanched and working out why... plus of course some excellent skiing to get to interesting places.

This is an excellent complement to the Foundation course. I would also consider doing this as a refresher course next year.

Progression
Reviewed by John "Spider" McKenzie from Scotland

We got a lot out of the course. I already knew a lot of the information, but didn't know how to use it to plan a day off-piste. Ground and terrain selection is critical, so today was very much what I was looking for.Please pass on our thanks to Tim for his excellent teaching.

Progression course
Reviewed by Megan Toman from Chamonix

Stuart utilised all moments to talk about avalanche awareness, including on all the lifts and during lunch. As a group we were constantly analysing the snow pack and weather and trying to make informed decisions about where to ski. We packed so much into the day including some great skiing. The whole day was enjoyable, informative and well worth the money.

Progression course - Christmas week
Reviewed by Tim Gosling from London

I've done a fair amount of avalanche training in the past and was treating the progression course as a refresher. This was probably the best training day I've had with a guide. Stuart has put real thought into how to pack a lot of information into a short space of time and, critically how to apply it and make decisions on the hill. I'm sure, were I to do the course again, I'd come away with something new. I'm pretty sure I'll be back.

Avalanche progression
Reviewed by Matthew Stone from Chamonix

Great two days with Stuart, he keeps the information very accessible and focused on staying safe. The two days were exactly what I was looking for, a really good foundation for exploring the mountains safely and good fun. Highly recommended.
