Whether you just sat in on your first Avalanche Awareness class or you're a seasoned backcountry traveler, NWAC offers a variety of workshops to help keep your avalanche safety and decision making skills sharp all season.
All workshops are sponsored by MSR and REI.
Going Deep Workshops: A Series of Backcountry Decision Making Workshops
The Northwest Avalanche Center brings together seasoned backcountry professionals along with outside-industry experts in an effort to provide tangible solutions to improve your day out in the backcountry.
Laying Tracks Workshops: Building a Foundation for Winter Backcountry Travel
Hone your existing tool-sets for traveling in the backcountry during winter. Each workshop focusses on a skill that helps you build a travel plan and understand your resources for traveling in avalanche terrain. Workshops are dynamic, interactive, and hands-on.
Heading out on your favorite trail with snowshoes on your feet may seem like a good idea, but the conditions may not warrant safe travel. If you've ever sat in an avalanche class and thought to yourself, "that's not me" as you watch a skier tackle a 40-degree slope whilst triggering a slide – this class is for you.
