1 full field day/ 4-hours of online coursework / $95
This course is a great entry point for those just starting to dip their toes in winter backcountry travel. We are more focused on the basic principles of identifying avalanche terrain than traveling through it. Within a short distance of a trailhead you will learn important terminology, how to initiate a rescue, how to read an avalanche forecast, develop a trip plan, and the do's and don’t of winter travel. All travel modes welcome.
