As a result of the gracious donations Friends of Berthoud Pass have received from their sponsors, members and rippers in the community who have attended the previous classroom and on-snow courses, FOBP proudly continues their series of free avalanche awareness classes for the 2012-2013 season.
Classroom Sessions: Avalanche Awareness
FOBP provides backcountry travelers with an overview of avalanche awareness, avoidance, forecasting and rescue.
Topics such as route selection, hazard minimization, best practices, preparedness and terrain analysis are covered in a 2-hour presentation.
No registration is required. The class begins promptly at 7:30 p.m. and is open to the public and FREE of charge.
Donations are gratefully accepted and benefit FOBP's 501(c)(3) non-profit grassroots avalanche education program.
