Intro to Avalanche Awareness

Part 1

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Start the winter out right with the skills you need to travel safely in avalanche terrain. Cascades Adventures will be heading out into the snowy backcountry to instruct participants on Avalanche Awareness basics. Information covered will be an abridged version of the Avalanche I curriculum, including Terrain, Weather, Snowpack and Human factors.  

A brief classroom session will follow the pre-trip meeting as an introduction for students with no experience or education in avalanche awareness. Anyone with current Avalanche Awareness knowledge will be encouraged to contribute during this session. This field day will offer students the opportunity to begin practicing their investigative skills on snow.

Participant Level: Beginner-Intermediate
Min/Max Participants: 3/10
