|Alt_Reality||I can't speak to the backcountry course but I did the Steep n Deep camp a few years ago and looking back now, believe I got a bargain for it. I'm sure whichever guide you choose will be money well spent.|

|killclimbz||The AST course is basically the Canadian version of AIARE from what I understand. Canada is also at the forefront with avalanche science and most US programs are basing their curriculum from Canadian ones. So yeah, it's a quality course to go with AST.|

Then again you said this will be in japan so perhaps there's a bit more recognition to it.|

Sorry for slightly off topic
So how does the AST Level I Avalanche course compare to the Aiare Level I?
Im looking at doing the AST Course next winter as that is the only one provided in the area ill be in Japan.

Oops...mind was thinking it but I didn't type it. I asked if the class at JH was aiare cert and the answer I got was yes. For +1k it better be!
Thanks for opining on exum

You'll receive a Level I certificate no matter what Level I class you take. All avy schools do that.
Exum Guides are in rarified air. You are talking about the best of the best with that group. There are just a few outfits that can stand with them. So yeah, you can't go wrong with Exum. I would highly recommend learning from them.

So I just got off the off the phone with JH and you do in fact receive a level 1 avy certification upon completion of the course. The girl on the phone also recommended Exumguides.com which, if I'm reading it right, seems much more cost effective.
Gonna take a closer look at exum when I have some time and compare.
