Our NSP Avalanche Level 1 Course covers: terrain identification, snowpack dynamics, weather factors, rescue skills, group/human factors, and route planning. Each student must have their own beacon, shovel, probe, and inclinometer; and must bring to each class. There will be no uphill travel during our course, so skins/snowshoes are not required. Please bring adequate clothes and food for full days on the mountain during our weekend; extra warm clothes for snow pit time is strongly recommended. We will eat lunch at the Mountain House on Saturday (lunch can be purchased here), but we will have lunch in the field on Sunday. All students should be comfortable skiing/riding in intermediate terrain. Cost of lift tickets are included in course fees; course fee made payable to instructor on first day of class. Please email Gabe White at email@example.com with any further questions, or if registering for a course as a non-patroller.
Course costs: Patrollers ($65), non-patrollers ($150)
