Please be advised that I am not saying that BMA or GMVS do not offer any of this education.  I just didn't see it on their website (via using the search engine) and I questioned if they have it or not.  Who knows, maybe they do?  Does anyone know?

Does anyone know if these ski academies - i.e.: GMVS, Burke Mtn, Carabasset, etc. - provide avalanche awareness?  Like, they're SKI academies that charge monstrous amounts of money for tuition........so you'd think that they could squeeze in a Level 1 course.

Yeah, it appears that CVA offers something:

yeah, my thoughts exactly.  The avi danger was considerable at the time.  Someone really dropped the ball.  Really sad, they were great kids.

Nate Vinton, a ski writer that I have a lot of respect for, seems to imply that the skiers were not properly made aware of the dangers of skiing off-piste in Europe. If that is indeed true, it is a damning indictment of the U.S. Ski Team staff and/or organization. It would mean gross negligence on the part of the coaches present and/or the staff who developed the European training program for development skiers, and would demand serious repercussions, not the least of which should include job terminations.
