Avalanche Awareness Training
Friends of Berthoud Pass is proud to continue offering our free avalanche
awareness classes for the 20011-‘12 season.
In an informal classroom setting we provide backcountry travelers with an overview

Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness
and terrain analysis will be covered in a 3-hour presentation.
