Friends of Berthoud Pass Avalanche Education

Hello Friends!

The high country was dusted this week with fresh snow. The ski movie premieres are upon us. We’re digging out the tuning bench, talking about season passes and making travel plans. And we’re thinking about backcountry safety.

Building on the success of last year’s FOBP avalanche training, we're offering a series of awareness clinics again this season and as a big thank you to the Front Range backcountry community, going to kick off the season by offering our first classroom session free of charge to the general public on Tuesday, October 11, at the Oriental Theater (4335 W. 44th Avenue, Denver) from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

We’re hoping to offer at least two or three additional classroom sessions in the Denver/ Boulder area and hope to arrange one in Grand County this year too. On-snow sessions will be announced shortly.

The October 11 session is a really special opportunity for us. In a comfortable and informal setting, our good friend Halsted Morris, the Colorado Avalanche Center’s Training Coordinator and Chief Instructor will provide backcountry travelers with an 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. Morris is one of the most respected and experienced avalanche educators in North America and we’re honored and fortunate to have him share with us.

Please arrive early as Halsted will start promptly at 7:00 pm. Parking is available in the neighborhood, though we respectfully request that you don’t park on Stuart Street north of 44th Avenue as a courtesy to the residents on that block.

Registration is not required for this event, but if you feel like it, RSVP us and direct any questions or comments to [email protected]

Please forward this to anyone in the area who you think might be interested.

Hey all,

Sorry for the last minute post, but we're doing another classroom presentation tonight at the Oriental.

We've also got one in Boulder on Nov 15th and one in Fraser on Dec 5th if you can make it to either of those.

Additionally, just today Leslie Ross very generously extended an offer to all the women members of FOBP for a special discount on all Babes in the Backcountry courses this season if you sign up before Dec 15th. Just one more incentive to join FOBP!

Come on out and see us and mention that you heard about here on Mountainbuzz.

Thanks!
