I'm interested in getting into ski touring and backcountry skiing. What's a guide service that offers a course that covers avalanche safety (probably just an AIARE 1) and touring in Washington for a decent price? Also I'm only 16 so that might be an issue with some services.
WA backcountry skiing course?

If you're an REI member many of the stores have classes in back country and avalanche safety. If you're not a member it's only a few bucks to join ($20?) and the membership lasts for the rest of your life. I joined in 1967 ($5) and I'm still using my membership.
