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.
