Snowmobile Level 2: Integrated Avalanche Rescue

Our Level 2 Course is a 4-Day Program that provides Snowmobilers the opportunity to advance their Avalanche Knowledge and Decision Making Skills.  This intensive, hands-on program is taught by and designed especially for sledders, offering students the skills necessary to recognize and evaluate potential avalanche terrain. The workshop will include morning sessions in a classroom followed by afternoon instruction while riding in the field.

This course focuses on the practical application of course material, such as route planning, communication techniques, group management in complex or challenging terrain, forecasting, and review of decision-making tools.  Our instructors for the Snowmobile Course include Mike Duffy, a pioneer in snowmobile avalanche education in Colorado.  All instructors will have good riding skills along with excellent avalanche education skills. This class fills up quick so make sure to sign up today.

This course now includes a day of Integrated Avalanche Rescue, as it is recommended that all backcountry travelers keep their skills current by taking an Avalanche Rescue Course and receiving a rescue card at least every other year.
