Enjoy 3 1/2 days of training on the snow with Driven's Team of avalanche, first aid/CPR certified trainers and Ride Rasmussen Style Instructors helping you feel confident in your backcountry snowmobiling adventures.
Classroom training starts at 6 p.m. M.T. and will be held at Rich's Montana Guest Ranch in the main lodge. This portion of the class is required in order to attend the remaining portion of the avalanche and riding school.
Course starts at 8 a.m. M.T. Spend the 1st full day of the School with Tyler's Backcountry Awareness in an Avalanche Awareness Intro Course. This class is great for getting your feet wet or for a quick refresher. The intro class consists of an evening in the classroom, followed by a day on the snow. We’ll discuss which resources you have, how to apply them and learn the basics of equipment and technologies available to help you have better rides. Intro classes are offered for sleds and snowbikes. An intro is a great place to start. There are no prerequisites for this class. The on-snow portion of the class will be in the field.
Spend the 2nd & 3rd full days with the Ride Rasmussen Style instructors learning and using the backcountry snowmobile riding techniques developed by Bret Rasmussen. As a backcountry expert for Ski-Doo, Bret often referred to as The Professor, has made it his mission to help snowmobilers travel the backcountry safer having more fun with family and friends. Bret is a renowned Hill Climb Champion with several King of the Hill belt buckles. He is also named as inventor on several patents used in the snowmobile industry.
