The GNFAC along with the Friends of GNFAC and ASMSU are sponsoring this course.

OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Pre-registration is REQUIRED.

We are back with a snowmobile specific field session on December 14th

The workshops will be held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, with a field course on either Saturday or Sunday. Different topics will be presented each evening. Topics include: avalanche terrain recognition, the effect weather has on avalanche hazard, the development of the mountain snowpack, decision-making skills, and basic search and rescue procedures. 

Participants in the field course should have basic skiing and snowboarding skills with the appropriate equipment to negotiate “groomed” intermediate ski runs. Please bring skins or snowshoes for uphill travel. Although not required, an avalanche rescue beacon, shovel, and probe will be very helpful for the field session. If you are signing up for the Snowmobile Field Session you must have your own sled and feel comfortable with basic backcountry riding.

You MUST attend both classroom sessions to go in the field on the weekend.

Classroom: Wed 12/4 & Thurs 12/5 @ 7 - 9:30 pm in Norm Asbjornson Hall

Field Session: Students REGISTER for one field session Sat 12/07 or Sun 12/08 or 12/14 @ 9:15a-3:00p at Bridger Bowl, or our new Snowmobile specific field session Saturday 12/14 @ Buck Ridge from 9:00 am - 3:00 pm. 

Cost: $30.00 donation to the Friends of GNFAC

Optional: $10 ($12 at the door) for a copy of "Snow Sense: A Guide to Evaluating Avalanche Hazard"
