Fee Structure for Clinics

$325 per day per person to join with a group. Group size is limited to no more than 10 participants and includes private instruction for each individual from a Ride Rasmussen Style certified instructor.

$350 per day for sled rental, this includes all gas, oil and maintenance. We have available only 2016 model year Summit T3 sleds enhanced for an improved off trail, back country experience. The sleds will be adjusted to fit the rider to maximize his experience.

$50 per day damage waiver to offset any unfortunate damage. This is a $1200 deductible meaning that the client pays the first $1200 damage and no more.

$2000 per day for private groups for those who want the ultimate experience. Invite only your best buddies and build the group with as many or as few riders as you desire.  Private groups may reserve Bret Rasmussen as an instructor for an additional $1,000 per day.

Upon booking, the first day of tuition is collected as a non-refundable deposit. The balance is collected prior to arrival. 

Meals are all extra. We generally eat together as a group at a local restaurant for dinner. Breakfast can be prepared in the kitchen of the cabin or lodge according to individuals tastes. Lunch of course is on the mountain, bring lots of liquids to drink.

Cancellation Policy:  Bookings are non-refundable, however, may be rescheduled to the following season if scheduling conflicts develop.

Avalanche Rescue Training

AIARE Rescue: $149
Avalanche Rescue is for everyone, whether you are just learning how to use your transceiver, an aspiring professional, or a backcountry traveler with many years of backcountry experience. This one-day course is a place to both learn new skills and keep your existing skills sharp. Avalanche Rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2.

AIARE 1: $399
The AIARE 1 is a three-day course that provides an introduction to using decision making tools to  help a group manage risk while traveling in avalanche terrain.

AIARE 2: $499
The AIARE 2 is a three-day course for those who have taken an AIARE 1 and Avalanche Rescue and have had at least a year of backcountry travel experience. The AIARE 2 provides backcountry leaders the opportunity to  advance their avalanche knowledge and decision making skills by applying their skills to new terrain and situations. Avalanche Rescue is a prerequisite for the AIARE 2.  It is highly recommended that participants gain at least one season’s worth of backcountry travel experience between taking the AIARE 1 and the AIARE 2.
