As the air gets colder and snow starts to fall skiers and snowboarders start to get excited for the winter ahead. Soon there will be more than just the white patch of death to ski on and more and more people will be venturing out in to the backcountry. For some this may be the first time, for others just the start of another season. Experienced and inexperienced, whatever your level this time of the year means it's time to receive or refresh you avalanche education!
December marks the 3rd season for SAFE AS Clinics. Ingrid Backstrom, Michelle Parker, Elyse Saugsted, Lel Tone, Sherry McConkey and myself are currently gearing up for another series of intro to avalanche clinics for ladies 14 and up. This year we will be returning to Squaw Valley, Crystal Mountain Resort, Stevens Pass and new for 2014 Copper Mountain Resort.
When you attend a SAFE AS Clinic you will learn about avalanche education in a supportive environment and meet other ladies with interest in the backcountry! If you have any questions don't hesitate to contact us at:
