Invaluable Lessons in Avalanche Education

After a relatively warm and dry late January and early February, vigorous winter snow storms and cold temps hit the Pacific Northwest these past few weeks bringing great learning opportunities to our back-country travelers and young outdoor enthusiasts! This week's forecast is promising more great skiing and snowboarding conditions and making it hard to stay indoors! Our weekend avalanche courses have been a great success, with our students walking away with invaluable knowledge, greater confidence, and sound decision making tools to aid their travels in avalanche terrain.
