Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re pleased to report that our avalanche training courses are well underway. We run Level 1 and Level 2 courses certified by the American Institute for Avalanche Research & Education and backcountry ski touring excursions in places like Stevens Pass, Mount Rainier, and other great venues.

Charlotte Austin, the Mountain Madness Outreach Coordinator, joined our Avalanche Level 2 course with the Cascade Powder Cats this weekend. “I can’t imagine a better venue for a full-immersion course,” she said. “Jay and Harlan were fantastic course leaders, and their combined knowledge, enthusiasm, and experience were huge attributes.”

If you haven’t been trained on how to travel in avalanche terrain, there’s still time to get out there this season! Check out the courses in February and March here.
