Friends of Berthoud Pass Hosts Avalanche Education Clinic
This workshop will provide backcountry travelers with an overview of avalanche awareness, avoidance, rescue and forecasting methods and skills. In a classroom setting, Halsted Morris, one of the most respected and experienced avalanche educators in the country, will cover topics such as how factors like weather, snowpack and terrain contribute to avalanche hazard.
The classroom session will be followed by an on-snow session where participants will practice snow-pit analysis and share first-hand knowledge on how to read and interpret terrain features and snow behavior.
In the spirit of preserving the legacy of Berthoud Pass, FOBP strives to empower the recreating public with potentially life-saving knowledge and skills.
