In these desolate places, one can never know if a deadly avalanche is around the corner. There’s no better way to survive one of nature’s most awe-inspiring displays by being prepared and educated ahead of time. The courses are offered all over the United States and Canada, and offer exercises like timed searches for beacons, deep snow navigation, differentiating snow types and efficient searching methods.
