Bobski’s Avy Savvy class last night was great. It was very informative, [and] he presented it in a way that kept your interest (asking questions, making some jokes, getting people to respond to discussion), made you consider options, and really emphasized the need to be safe out there.

Some of the main points that caught my attention were weather descriptions, snow types, incline angles, CAIC reports, rescue procedures and equipment, and personal responsibility.

GREAT videos to emphasize some points too.

I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in the basics or as a refresher; there were quite a few people last night who had taken advanced classes but came to refresh on some core principles.-Thanks! speth

Be sure to check the calendar for more events.

    My husband and I attended your class last night and I wanted to tell you much we appreciated it! You did a great job of presenting a huge amount of information, and you kept it super interesting, entertaining and relevant. I am planning to start backcountry skiing this year (can’t handle the ski resorts anymore) and have done a lot of snowshoeing in the past. This was the first avy class I have taken and I feel like I learned so much – probably should have started this years ago. Obviously still have a ton to learn, but I feel more confident about what to look for and be aware of. Can’t wait to strap on some skins and start working harder for my downhills!

    Thanks again –

    Just wanted to drop a line to say thanks for the avy class. It was very informative and much better than the one I took ten years ago. The refresher was great!



    P.S., we heard about your class via word of mouth
