Does anyone know of any upcoming classes in Portland, or better yet in Hillsboro?

Your classroom training may occur mostly outdoors or half days inside. Try Mountain Savvy Avanlanche or Oregon Ski guides. You could alway check to see if any of the resorts are offering Avy training for a fraction of the cost. I got my training through Mt Baker. The guy who conducts avy control also teaches the course. You get the same quality of training that you would receive from an AAIRE’s course. Good luck… Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
