Info
COVID-19: Learn about our most up-to-date guidance for participants and leaders on our COVID-19 Response page. All participants and leaders must agree to the COVID-19 Code of Conduct before participating in this Mountaineers course.

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.  If enrolled in both, each field trip is required. There will be a $10.00 discount applied if you take both courses together. Enter Promo Code CO14SNOW once when registering to recieve discount.
