This clinic is a basic introduction to avalanche awareness and safety. Learn the basics of snow science and avalanches in this class session and one-day field trip. We’ll snowshoe into the backcountry on Mt. Hood to learn how to evaluate snow and terrain conditions, use avalanche transceivers, and practice rescue strategies. A mandatory 1.5 hour classroom session will introduce the concepts we will explore in the field. No previous experience needed.
