Level 1 AIARE Avalanche Course 2-18 to 2-20

Over President’s Day weekend we were able to have John Kascenska come over from Vermont to co-teach, allowing us to open enrollment to 12 students. We spent the 1st two days at the Highland Center in Crawford Notch with a mixture of classroom and field sessions. On a very chilly President’s Day we toured below Tuckerman Ravine, investigating the snow conditions around Hillman’s Highway and the Little Headwall. I wasn’t too trigger happy with the camera this go around, but here you go!

One of our attendees was avid outdoorsman and blogger Phil Werner. Phil took close to 200 pics and some video during the course and will be writing a piece associated for the course soon. Check it out on http://www.sectionhiker.com!

Only two courses left this season that are not full! Get the details here:
