    I am looking into getting my Avy 2 next month and can likely get into a class with Colorado Mountain School up in Estes Park.

    Has anyone used these guys?
    Have you done their Avy 2course?
    What do you think about them?

    Please let me know!

    I took Avy 2 through Aspen Expeditions.

    Also a real value if you live Colorado Mountain College in-district is to take the AVY 2 through CMC, whereby their are still some openings.

    I did my Level 2 at CMS and I can’t say enough good things about their venue! It’s an awesome course with top-notch instructors.
