Event Details

The GNFAC along with the Friends of GNFAC and the Pioneer Mountain Education Foundation are sponsoring this course.  

Open to the public.

Pre-registration is REQUIRED.

The workshop will be held on Saturday, with a field course on Sunday. Different topics will be presented on Saturday. Topics include: avalanche terrain recognition, the effect weather has on avalanche hazard, the development of the mountain snowpack, decision making skills, and basic search and rescue procedures. Participants in the field course should have basic skiing and snowboarding skills with the appropriate equipment to negotiate “groomed” intermediate ski runs. Please bring skins or snowshoes for uphill travel. Although not required, an avalanche rescue beacon, shovel and probe will be very helpful for the field session.

You MUST attend the classroom session on Saturday to go in the field on Sunday.
