Snowmobile Avalanche Awareness Clinic with Field Day
The Bridgeport Avalanche Center is offering three FREE Avalanche Awareness with Field Day clinics this winter. Each clinic consists of a two hour evening classroom session followed the next day by a full day field session.
Topics include: how to read and understand avalanche advisories, avalanche terrain recognition, the effects of weather on avalanche hazard, signs of snowpack instability, decision-making skills for riding in avalanche terrain, and basic avalanche companion rescue.
Participants in the field session will each need a reliable snowmobile and basic mountain riding skills. A modern avalanche transceiver, shovel, probe, and helmet are required equipment for the field session and must be provided by the participant.
