Avalanche course Jan 2-4: spots still available!

Ski season is in full swing now, and the snow has been dumping in the North Cascades. If you have any plans of skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or snowmobiling in the backcountry this winter, please make sure you have taken an avalanche education course!

This weekend's Avalanche Level 1 course, Jan 2 - 4, still has a couple spots available, but is filling up fast. The course is $275 and is 3 days long (1 day in the classroom, 2 in the field). If you would like to make a reservation, please call us at (360) 671-1505 or register online.

In today's news, there were 9 avalanche related fatalities in the Northwest this past weekend - read these articles in the Seattle Times for more information:
