This class occurs annually during the month of January.

The class consists of four lectures and 1 field trip. Lecture topics include backcountry travel, avalanche awareness and safety, route selection, cold weather ailments, clothing, and equipment.

Even if you already know how to ski or snowshoe, it is well worth taking the class for the training in avalanche terrain recognition and avalanche avoidance.  These skills can improve your safety in the backcountry.

Students may take this course or the Nordic ski course separately, or both together.  If taking both courses, both field trips are required.  A discount can be applied if you pay for both courses at the same time.  The one time discount code is is on the registration page.
