Avalanche Awareness – Classroom

January 29 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is part one of two presentations in our avalanche safety education programs. Attendance to this awareness presentation is required to attend the companion rescue clinic field training.

Since avalanches are the number one cause of snowmobile fatalities in the west, the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation is presenting this free snowmobile-based Avalanche Awareness presentation. This presentation is designed to familiarize the winter backcountry enthusiast with hazard recognition and techniques for safe travel in avalanche terrain. In 90 percent of the avalanche accidents, the victim or someone in the victim’s party triggers the avalanche. Avalanche conditions are predictable, and many accidents can be prevented. If you are planning to ride in avalanche terrain, be sure to check the local avalanche forecast before your trip. We encourage you to take an avalanche awareness course if you ride in avalanche country and check the United States Forest Service avalanche center forecast website.
