Evening classroom sessions provide an introduction to the interactions of weather, snowpack, and terrain in producing avalanche hazard.
During field sessions students will dig snow pits, identify snow layers and practice route finding and avalanche rescue. Participants will learn and practice a variety of stability tests that can be done in the backcountry.
The first two days of each course are evening classroom sessions from 6:00-9:00, and the last two days are full days in the field.
