Can I waive out of Basic Snow?

You can waive out if you demonstrate mastery of all the materials covered in the class. Know that Basic Snow is a prerequisite for Technical Snow and is thus also a prerequisite for the graduation climb, a couloir climb. The couloir climb is no small undertaking. If you waive out and are found to be unsafe, you will be asked to leave the class/climb and go back to Basic Snow.
