Friends of Berthoud Pass 2012-13 avalanche classes
is pleased to continue our free series of avalanche awareness classes for the 2012-13 season. We will provide backcountry travelers with a classroom overview of avalanche awareness, avoidance, rescue and forecasting methods and skills.
Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness and terrain analysis will be covered in a 2-hour classroom presentation.
The course is free and open to the public. Donations are kindly accepted. No RSVP is needed.
The class runs from 7:00pm until approximately 9:00pm.
Full-day on-snow sessions at Berthoud Pass will be conducted in February 2013. You must attend a classroom presentation in order to register for the on-snow.
