FOBP On-Snow Registration

It’s time to register for the Friends of Berthoud Pass On-Snow Avalanche Awareness class*, held at the summit of Berthoud Pass. This year, we will host two days of On-Snow classes – February 9th and 10th.  You only need to register for one of these days, not both.

REQUIRED: Download, sign and bring the Liability Waiver with you to the class.  Without the waiver, you will not be allowed to participate.

During the day you will learn the basics of:

  How to read and interpret the avalanche bulletin
  How weather, terrain and snowpack contribute to avalanche danger
  How to recognize avalanche terrain
  How to deploy your rescue equipment
  A demonstration of companion rescue

*This introductory class is not a substitute for a AIARE Level 1 course.

Location: Berthoud Pass summit

Dates: Feb 9,10

Time:  be geared up in the Berthoud Pass parking lot by 8am.

Course length: one day

Price: Free.  Your donations are extremely valued and gratefully accepted.
