Avalanche Awareness - EPIC TV Series


MSC is proud to present a collaborative project with Epic TV. The video series is designed to be a short beginners guide about avalanche risk, and some basic techniques.

New Zealand Mountain Safety Council (MSC) endorsed Avalanche Courses

It is possible to spend a life time safely recreating in avalanche terrain but it takes skills and knowledge learnt through time in the hills and taking education courses.

We have endorsed a number of training providers across NZ to deliver our recreational courses, and the Professional level courses are delivered by a number of tertiary providers around New Zealand.
