Last weekend wrapped up our 2nd course of the season. This post comes delayed since as soon as that course finished I was west coast bound for an Instructor Training Course in Steven’s Pass, Washington. As I wait for my plane back home I have some time to get the photos from the course uploaded.
Just like the 1st course the conditions were near perfect for learning about decision making in avalanche terrain, and the 8 of us (plus an aspirant instructor) made our way up into Tuckerman Ravine and even got a few short powder turns near the mouth of Right Gully.
As I said, as this course wrapped up I had hours to prepare to fly out to the Cascades for some excellent continued professional development. Lots of classroom time, but also some great turns in fluffy white stuff. Stay tuned for a full report within a day… Subscribe if you are interested… and if you are looking to take a course this winter we may have some new spots opening as we bring some of our guides up to instructor status over the next few weeks. Some courses previously sold out may soon have openings, so check the dates here and let us know if you can come join us. It’s an excellent time to take an avalanche course with us!
