***Two people looking for others to join a one day Mt. Washington Avalanche Awareness Course March 19th.****
This course is for climbers and skiers who are looking to take the first step towards learning about avalanches, what causes them, and how they can be avoided. You’ll start with some handouts and a short lecture at Pinkham Notch base camp, followed by a ski tour (or snowshoe) into either Tuckerman Ravine or The Gulf of Slides.
Along the way and up in the ravine we will cover the following subjects:
*How to identify avalanche terrain
*Basic route finding and safe travel in the ravines
*Transceiver training and mock rescue
*Snowpits and basic snowpack analysis
Dates: arranged on a custom basis, call or email for more information
