Avalanche Awareness Class:
With the increased popularity of winter activities such as ice climbing, winter mountaineering, and backcountry skiing/snowboarding many more people are traveling into avalanche terrain. Nearly all avalanches that involve people are triggered by the victims themselves or a member of their party. This is actually good news, it means that if we know how to recognize avalanche danger, we can avoid it. Attending this class will give you an introduction on the following topics: what is avalanche terrain, trip planning, reducing your risks in the field, rescue, avalanche equipment and your next steps.
Dates: Winter 2014
Time: 1730 – 2000
