I haven't been to one of this year's yet, but from previous years there are generally over 100 people per class. I think last season after all the classes were held, we had over 2000 total participants for the class room sessions. Out of that, around 300 got into the on snow session.

I'd say there was somewhere around 60-70 at the D.U. class that I went to last week. It was a big ass auditorium though, so I could be underestimating that number.

The classes range in size from 60-120 with average attendance around 90. This year, so far, we've been on track with those numbers, with 90 at DU, 155 at CU, 65 at Casselman's, 75 at Colorado College, and around 80 at Bent Gate.

Our largest ever was 180 at the Oriental Theater last year. (Incidentally, we just added a class Wed 1/19 at the Oriental) Our smallest was 5 in Breckenridge several years ago, if you're wondering why we haven't been back to Breck.

Our field days are limited to 75 participants per day, including instructors. We try to maintain a student teacher ratio of 3:1 to maximize the experience and to minimize our footprint.

Our yearly total hovers around 1,200 but our goal is to hit 2,000 by 2012. The field days will always remain small, however in the future we may add more dates.

Hope this is useful. Feel free to address questions anytime to: info*berthoudpass.org
