This past weekend Kirk, Hatch and I (w/ help from fellow Stanley splitboarder & yurt master Trei) had our 1st Level 1 Avalanche class at the Hut.  With the 2 feet of new snow in the past week, this made for a good learning environment, as well as good ski conditions.

We covered many aspects, noted trends, tracked weak layers, talked about human factors, traveled safely in avalanche terrain and got some great turns in.  With popularity greatly increasing, this begins the streak of many avalanche level 1’s we are doing this month.  One Avalanche Level 1 down, 4 more to go!  We’re doing a custom Level 1 w/ Greenwoods Ski Haus right now, so check back soon…
