Event Details

This class will take place in two parts:

The classroom session will be January 30th at Park County High School in
Livingston from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. Instructors will cover basic avalanche awareness. Topics include: avalanche terrain recognition, the effect weather has on avalanche hazard, the development of the mountain snowpack, decision-making skills. In addition, there will also be a discussion of rescue techniques and avalanche rescue gear.

Part two of the class will be a field session on
Sunday, Feb 2nd at Mill Creek from 10 am to 2 pm. We encourage participants to bring their own avalanche beacon, shovel, probe, and pack. The field session will be held entirely outdoors. Come prepared to comfortably participate in any weather conditions. Hot drinks, snacks, and extra layers are strongly encouraged. The course goals are to 1) learn how to dig a snow pit, perform stability tests and interpret avalanche conditions, 2) learn how to wear and operate an avalanche beacon, and 3) perform a mock rescue including single and multiple burial searches. The course will also cover the importance of beacon skills; beacon operation and search principles; demonstration and practice of initial, secondary and pinpoint search; rescue practice scenarios including group management, probing and shoveling.

Pre-registration is required.
