2015 Avalanche Level 1 for the Professional Rescuer

SPART Members Doug Burchard, Randy Riggs, Sumi Lavin, Isaac Ginsberg, and Frank Rossi taught classroom sessions for a NSP Avalanche Level 1 course. Attendance was full, with 30 students from area patrols and King County Search and Rescue. Avalanche education and outreach is one of SPART’s primary missions.

While field trips are normally at Snoqualmie Pass, this year the sessions are split due to the low snow pack. One session was at Paradise in Mount Rainier National Park and the next was pushed to April. Here’s hoping we get a snow dump in between!
