We continue important practice with our avalanche safety skills.

Skills covered will include:
  • Group assesment
  • Pre-tour planning
  • Developing a safety plan
  • Transceiver, probe and shovel review
  • Hazards assessment
  • Uphill and downhill splitboard coaching
  • Time management on a tour
  • Reviewing group dynamics
