Level 2 Avalanche Analyzing Snow Stability and Avalanche Hazard
Where: Central Wyoming College Jackson Campus
This course is, as stated, a level two course – which builds on the AIARE 1 course. The American Institute for Avalanche Research level 2 course will give backcountry riders, and explorers skills that include, guiding a small group through the backcountry, and how to navigate difficult terrain, and critical hazard assessment. These courses can get pretty spendy, however if you spend a lot of time in the backcountry, they are totally worth it to know the dangers, and how to deal with them. So join the team at CWC – Jackson Campus February 15th for a wealth of knowledge that could save your own, or somebody you love life. Get more information and purchase tickets here.
Although this is a short list of events happening here in our little corner of Idaho this month, I think you will find that there are a number of good family oriented, as well as adult activities to enjoy.
