Avalanche Course

Another 3 day AIARE Level 1 Avalanche Course came to a successful close yesterday. Multiple snow storms have started giving us a nice variable snowpack with interesting layers and observations to be made.

About David Lottmann

David grew up skiing in the Whites and started climbing at a summer camp just north of Mt. Washington when he was 16. Those first couple of years solidified climbing as a lifetime passion. From 1996-2000 he served in the USMC, and spent the better part of those years traveling the globe (18 countries). After returning to civilian life he moved to North Conway to focus on climbing and was hired in 2004 as a Rock and Ice Instructor. Since then Dave has taken numerous AMGA courses, most recently attaining a Single Pitch Instructor. He has completed a Level 3 AIARE avalanche course, is a Level 2 Course Leader, holds a valid Wilderness First Responder and is a member of Mountain Rescue Service. When David isn't out guiding he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, backcountry skiing, trying to cook something new once a week and sampling new micro-brews. He lives in Conway, NH with his wife Michelle, son Alex, and daughter Madalena.

    It was a super weekend with a great instructor – Thanks Dave! Looks like this weather’s just going to keep adding more to that variable snowpack… quick to rise, indeed (I am just now looking at the HIGH to CONSIDERABLE rating today!) The courses coming up will have great stuff to look at and learn from for sure. Take care out there, and thanks again!
