FOBP Avalanche Courses 2010-2011

Friends of Berthoud Pass is proud to continue our free, high quality avalanche awareness courses for the 2010-11 season.

Bob Tomsky, aka ‘Bobski’, the former Berthoud Pass Ski Patrol Avalanche Training Director, will provide backcountry travelers with a classroom overview of avalanche awareness, avoidance, rescue and forecasting methods and skills.

Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness and terrain analysis will be covered in a 2 1/2 hour classroom presentation.

The course is free and open to the public. Donations are kindly accepted. No RSVP is needed.

The class runs from 7:00pm until approximately 10:0pm.

Full-day on-snow sessions at Berthoud Pass will be conducted in February 2011. You must attend a classroom presentation in order to register for the on-snow.

Logi-There is no charge for the class

GPP33- The on snow is one day, once all of the classroom sessions are done we will open up registration for the on snow as space is limited.
