Friend of Berthoud Pass 2013-14 Avalanche Classes

Well it is that time of year again. 10 years of doing this. I've been around for eight of them.

2013-2014 FOBP Avalanche Awareness Courses – Ten Year Anniversary Friends of Berthoud Pass

Quote:
Thanks to generous donations from our sponsors, members and supporters, FOBP embarks on it’s Tenth Year of free avalanche awareness classes for the 2013-2014 season.

Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness and terrain analysis are covered in a 2-hour presentation. No registration is required. The classes begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted, and are open to the public and FREE of charge.
