Avalanche I Course

Avalanche awareness and snow pack analysis skills are critical in backcountry snow travel. Please consider participating in this important training.
The club is sponsoring a AIARE Avalanche I course including three days of instruction from the experts at Pro Guiding. The course will be held at Alpental at the Summit at Snoqualmie. Snowshoers are welcome.

Cost of the Course

The cost of the course is approximately $300. All participants must have an avalanche probe, shovel, and an avalanche transceiver. These items can be rented from Pro Guiding or from local shops such as Marmot, and there are some to be borrowed in the Bushwhacker community.


There are no prerequisites for the course.

Status of the Course

The Avalanche Course is offered periodically.
