February 2014 Avalanche 1 Class
SPART members taught and attended a National Ski Patrol Avalanche 1 field trip on February 1, 2014.
In this session, Chris Seager, SPART member and Summit at Snoqualmie Ski Patroller, demonstrates digging a snow test pit and demonstrates some snow condition tests. The happy students in this group are from a wide range of sources, including area ski patrols, SPART, and other King County Search and Rescue units.
Avalanche safety, including education, is a core mission of SPART.
