Event description


Avalanche Safety in the Rockies Snowpack—Know Before You Go

Following the CAIC's "Know Before You Go" program, we will discuss small team rescue techniques, personal equipment, current conditions and recent avalanche activity. We'' give you some free resources to learn more and lots of time for Qs & As.

Alpine member Dan Hamm has nearly two decades of mountain rescue experience concentrated in avalanche rescue. He is AIARE 1 and 2 certified, spent countless hours at professional conferences and has been a Snow Tech in Flight for Life-Colorado’s Avalanche Deployment Program for 10 years

Skills for the Hills is Alpine Rescue Team's public wilderness and backcountry education program. Our classes are free, however, we appreciate donations online or at the door. We never charge you, your family or the local authorities for search and rescue.

Support Alpine Rescue Team and all Colorado SAR teams by purchasing a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) Card. Buy a five-year ($12) or one-year ($3) card online.
