This just in, SheJumps will be offering a limited number of full scholarships ($140 value) to the upcoming Women’s Backcountry 101 classes! Have you always wanted to take an avalanche safety course but the cost scared you away? You can apply here:
Back by popular demand is the Utah Avalanche Center and SheJumps women’s only Backcountry 101 class! On Thursday night, a forecaster will use videos, slides, stories and class exercises to explain avalanche characteristics, snowpack fundamentals, clues to instability, terrain assessment, safe travel techniques, rescue techniques and decision-making. Saturday will be a field day in the Brighton Resort backcountry, where attendees will be divided up into groups by experience, ability and interest, with a ratio of 6 students with one instructor. Women attending this class need to be at least an intermediate level skier, capable of skiing uphill with skins and descending intermediate level slopes in ungroomed, challenging conditions. Come learn about the backcountry and brush up on some skills with other active women!
