FOBP 2012-13 Avalanche Classes

FOBP free Basic Avalanche Awareness class dates are up! First one is next week. We do a free on snow day in February, you must attend a classroom session to sign up for this. There are a few more classroom dates that will be added. Our Facebook page will carry the updates along with our webpage. I will update this thread accordingly with the class schedule as it evolves.

If you are in the Colorado Front Range and are interested in learning about traveling safely in the backcountry. This is a great place to start. Many members of this forum have attended both our classroom and on snow sessions. Get educated.

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.

We have done classes in the Springs. Unfortunately this year we were not able to get a space for the class at the time we were scheduling classes. No more classes are going to be added this season. Hopefully next year we'll get to do a Springs classroom session.
