Custom & Tactical Courses


The Silverton Avalanche School prides itself in developing custom courses. Custom programs are great for groups or individuals looking for a trip tailored to their goals, abilities, pace, or schedule needs. 

We most recently developed a custom course for Airforce Pararescue Specialty Jumpers that met all of the alpine rescue technique requirements for their Career Field Education and Training Plan (CFETP) as well as the American Avalanche Association’s Level I avalanche course requirements.

We’ve also provided courses for a railroad maintenance of way crew, executives, college groups and outdoor clubs.
