Details

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 23 and 25 Jan from 6:00p to 9:30p.  The field session is scheduled for both 27 and 28 Jan 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 $175 for the Pikes Peak Group and Leaders and $200 for all others.  For class details, please contact Eric Hunter at ehunter67@yahoo.com.  A general fitness level is required to spend the day snowshoeing 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 please bring your own to learn from if you have it.   ________________________________ There is a $10 cancellation fee. No refunds will be provided in the last week prior to class or for no shows.
