This is the Decision Making in Avalanche Terrain course required for both HAMS and BMS students, and is highly recommended for anyone going into the winter wilderness.  The classroom sessions will be held in Colorado Springs, and will teach how to develop a plan for travel on avalanche terrain, how to identify terrain that is avalanche safe, how to make safe terrain choices before and during a trip, and how to make an efficient companion rescue through hands on experience.  This is the course to make all the other winter activities safer.  Classroom dates are scheduled for 28 and 30 Jan from 6:00p to 9:30p.  The field session is scheduled for both 1 and 2 Feb all day.  All field sessions are scheduled seperately as CMC trips.  Attendance at both classroom sessions and both field sessions is required to successfully complete the course.  The cost for this class is $125.  For class details, please contact Eric Hunter at  A general fitness level is required to spend the day hiking around and digging in the snow.  This course will be on snowshoes only.  The target audience is anyone new to avalanche skills and anyone wanting to refresh their expired skills.  Each student will be required to bring their own 10 Essentials, appropriate clothing for winter travel, and snowshoes.  The course will provide beacons, probes, and shovels for use in the field sessions, however bring your own if you have it.   ________________________________
