Basic Snowshoeing - Olympia - 2018

Snowshoeing Course

Basic Snowshoeing

This series of four lectures will include an orientation to backcountry travel, avalanche awareness and safety, route selection, cold weather ailments, clothing, and equipment. Even if you already know how to ski or snowshoe, the training in avalanche terrain recognition and avalanche avoidance, is well worth taking the class and improving your safety in the backcountry. Students may take the Snowshoeing course or the Nordic ski course separately, or both together. Both field trips are required.
