Friends of Berthoud Pass Avalanche Awareness Clinics

Friends of Berthoud Pass is doing their low cost avalanche awareness courses again. There are refresher clinics and then an on snow portion where groups go out in the field and see what it's all about. The clinics are free and you must attend to qualify for the on snow portion. On snow costs something like $30 which is a bargain considering a Level I course will set you back $100-$200. Here is the release.
