Avalanche Awareness Clinics and Courses

Our first AIARE Avalanche Level 1 Course has come and gone. But there are still opportunities for you to get into the backcountry and learn some skills and avalanche awareness. Mountain Madness is also teaming together with the Northwest Avalanche Center in various locations around the Seattle area to host Avalanche Awareness clinics for FREE! Intro to Backcountry Touring extensions available for Level 1 Avalanche students and a new Wet Snow and Spring Skiing Workshop too. Check the schedule below for future free awareness clinics and the avalanche courses that still have openings.
