Mountaineering websites/training information

Hey snow community. I made an attempt at climbing Long's Peak last year in the winter, but fell short about 800 feet. Anyhow, I got the bug, but I've got a lot to learn. I'm seeking education and training in mountaineering. Are there websites available that can help an interested party find these things? Any information is appreciated.
Thanks,
Kyle

These are the only websites I know of where you might find some usefull information (the best thing is to hook up with knowledgeable veterans, and learn):

Colorado Mountain Club

Online Education Information - CAIC: Colorado Avalanche Information Center

::Chris Davenport, Ski the 14ers project::

For technical information grab a copy of Freedom of the Hills.

Also look at Mountain Project. It is the climbers equivalent to the buzz.

CB mountain guides offers a few classes every spring to teach ski mountaineering. If I can pull the money together I will definitely take it this year.
