Mountain Safety

Online articles and videos about avalanche education topics provide valuable supplemental knowledge but there is no substitution for taking an avalanche course. To understand how to safely study and observe the snowpack you need to spend a few days in the field with the experts.

There are more avalanche courses offered in North America this winter than ever before. If you have been interested in taking a course but never have, or have taken the Level One and have wanted to take Level Two, now is the time!
