'The Patrol Fund' has successfully created an affordable avalanche education program for snow sports locals. This winter we have hosted 2 Avalanche 1 courses, with the potential for an additional one in March. These courses have filed up fast and have a waiting list.
This is the first winter The Patrol Fund has hosted this kind of class.
