We are offering Mountain Awareness courses all winter!!!

I will be teaching these courses during the course of the winter with the help of my friends at www.mountainawareness.com. I am looking forward to passing on some of the knowledge needed for getting around the snowy summits safely. Whether you are just getting started or you have skied for years learning the basics is the minimum.
