CANYONEERING SCHOOL

WHAT IS THE ATS CANYONEERING SCHOOL?

Canyoneering takes place all over the Globe. Wherever you find a mountain range, you are likely to find technical canyon routes nearby. The ATS team will prepare you for a lifetime of canyon descents though our extensive course options. Upon successful completion of our courses, you will be able to take this sport into your own hands and conduct your own decents without the assistance of a guide.

 

If you have prior experience, feel free to contact us so we can place you in the correct course.

 

Courses are offered in California, Arizona, Washington, and Utah.

During this program you will complete three separate days of technical training with at least two canyon descents. This is the equivalent of taking our Canyoneering Level 1-3 courses.
