Yesterday brought the conclusion of the 2nd to last Avalanche Course of the season. 6 aspiring mountaineers, skier’s, and climbers spent 3 days in North Conway and surrounding notches learning the basics of traveling in avalanche terrain and backcountry decision making.
Our last course of the season is March 25th-27th, but it is already full. If you didn’t get into an avalanche course this season check out http://www.avalanche.org for some great online learning tools. And next October/November call us to book early! We’ve had two avalanche accidents on Mount Washington in the last two weeks, and neither of the victims had ever taken an avalanche course.
Knowledge is power, get educated, practice safe travel skills and terrain selection based on the conditions, and climb on!
