Atomic and Salomon, two ski brands owned by the Amer Sports group, have teamed up with We Powder to create Mountain Academy, which provides online snow safety education. The online platform features a series of high-quality videos, pictures, animations and self-tests, which help students to identify various types of avalanches, to learn about snowpack variables, rescue tools and techniques. The contents of the two available courses have been developed through partnership with mostly U.S. organizations specializing in mountain and avalanche education. The instruction may be purchased directly on the online platform or through the acquisition of specific Atomic and Salomon products. Proceeds from the Mountain Academy are directed to the North American Mountain Academy Fund, to support local forecasting and avalanche organizations. The company emphasizes that Mountain Academy is not meant to replace avalanche safety and gear training.
