This course is brought to you by GNFAC and Friends of GNFAC, and it is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate avalanche terrain safely. The course includes both online pre-recorded classroom content and live Zoom Q&A sessions. During the online portion of the course, you will cover various topics such as avalanche introduction, terrain recognition, mountain weather, decision making, avalanche rescue, and trip planning using GNFAC web resources. It is crucial to watch the videos ahead of time and come prepared with questions for the live Q&A session. The field session will take place at Bridger Bowl, from 9:00am to 3:00pm. Participants should have basic skiing or snowboarding skills and the appropriate equipment. You will be split into groups based on your mode of travel, except for families or friends taking the course together. Remember to bring your backpack, avalanche safety equipment (beacon, shovel, probe), and enough food, water, and clothing for a 6-hour outdoor class. If you need assistance with avalanche safety equipment, there are local rental options available. Thanks to our partner, Bridger Bowl, we are able to provide free 1-ride lift tickets for participants. If you already have a pass to Bridger Bowl, plan to use your own. The course is donation-based, with a suggested donation of $50. Pre-registration is required, and you can find more information on our website mtavalanche.com or by emailing friendsofgnfac@gmail.com. Don't miss out on this opportunity to increase your avalanche safety knowledge and skills.
