Montana Backcountry Adventures
will offer four Avalanche
1 courses this winter at the Bell
Lake Yurt in the Tobacco Root
Mountains, west of Bozeman.
These are three-day Level 1 certification
courses for those interested
in learning how to identify avalanche
terrain, practice route finding and safe
travel in the backcountry, dig snow
pits, find weak layers in the snowpack,
and make stability evaluations
of backcountry ski slopes.
Students will practice beacon searches
and rescue scenarios in real ski
terrain. Class time discussion and
lectures will be in the mornings and
evenings in the yurt. All meals are
included for three days (24 course
hours) and two nights at the Bell
Lake Yurt.
