I was considering checking out some of those "courses" at REI-Denver, do you not think they're worth it?

There is a second session called "Avy Awareness - Beyond the Basics" or something like that, with CAIC running the show.

Is that one any good or should I just avoid those and go to the Friends of Berthoud ones?
