FOBP On-Snow Registration
It’s time to register for the Friends of Berthoud Pass On-Snow Avalanche Awareness class*, held at the summit of Berthoud Pass. This year, we will host two days of On-Snow classes – January 23rd and 24th. You only need to register for one of these days, not both.
YOU MUST have attended a classroom session this season in order to attend the on-snow. Every participant is required to provide their own beacon, shovel, and probe as well as AT/Tele skis or a Splitboard. Snowshoeing and bootpacking will not be permitted!
REQUIRED: Download, sign and bring the Liability Waiver with you to the class. Without the waiver, you will not be allowed to participate.
During the day you will learn the basics of:
- How to read and interpret the avalanche bulletin
- How weather, terrain and snowpack contribute to avalanche danger
- How to recognize avalanche terrain
- How to deploy your rescue equipment
- A demonstration of companion rescue
*This introductory class is not a substitute for a AIARE Level 1 course.
