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.

Please note that this course will provide priority to Olympia and the surrounding area students. If you are enrolling from outside of the Olympia area, there is a possibility you may get bumped from the course. I apologize for this. Because of the pandemic, our programs are all struggling about how to move forward.

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. There will be a $10.00 discount applied if you take both courses together. Contact Tom Eckhout at teckhout@msn.com for more details.
