Snowmobile Idaho - Free Avalanche Awareness Class
Since avalanches are the number one cause of snowmobile fatalities in the west, the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation is presenting a free Snowmobile based Avalanche Awareness course. The class is geared to familiarize the winter backcountry enthusiast with hazard recognition and techniques for safe travel in avalanche terrain.
Goals of this program are based on the five-point national avalanche safety campaign, and help riders to put into practical use each of the following:
1) Get the Gear,
2) Get the Training,
3) Get the Forecast,
4) Get the Picture, and
5) Get out of Harm’s Way.
