This course will be a condensed overview of the avalanche phenomenon with a goal of participants being able to identify how, when, where and why avalanches are likely to occur in Rocky Mountain National Park. After a study of avalanches for one and one-half hours in the classroom, we will travel to Hidden Valley and during a two-hour hike, study the snowpack and terrain aspects of avalanches and review the basics of avalanche rescue techniques.
