As a result of the gracious donations we have received from our sponsors, members and rippers in the community who have attended our previous classroom and on-snow courses, FOBP proudly continues our series of free avalanche awareness classes for the 2012-2013 season.

Classroom Sessions: Avalanche Awareness

  • We provide backcountry travelers with an overview of avalanche awareness, avoidance, forecasting and rescue.
  • Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness and terrain analysis are covered in a 2-hour presentation.
  • No registration is required. The class begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public and FREE of charge.
  • Donations are gratefully accepted and benefit our 501(c)(3) non-profit grassroots avalanche education program.

    Were you guys not able to secure a venue in Colorado Springs? I was hoping to attend a class closer to home?

    I am trying to verify the Avalanche Awareness Class tonight at the Orient Theater. I live in Elizabeth, & would be very disappointed to drive all the way into the center of Denver & find out the class was canceled.
