From Max:

"My big class project this year is called the Passion Project. The passion project is a project where you write an essay about a subject you are passionate about, the other part of the project is to give a presentation about the subject. My passion is skiing, and I have chosen to do my project on the aspect of ski safety because it is so important.

I saw on your website that the mountaineers offer different types of youth programs, including school group education. Since we are encouraged to have a guest speaker at our presentation, I was wondering if anyone at the mountaineers would be willing to volunteer their time to speak to my class abut ski safety and avalanche control. Please let me know if this is a possibility. My presentation will be during the school day between June 10-17."

Please contact  at the Seattle Program Center to discuss the details of getting in touch with Max.
