The location is TBD but generally, we spend the day near the SNRA and Galena Pass. Join the Friends of the SAC instructors for a field day covering avalanche rescue basics, snowpack layering, avalanche terrain identification, and other basic snow and avalanche concepts. This field class is a great way to get your feet "wet" before you take a L1 class! Sign up for the class at the Friends' Thursday night classroom session. There is a $40 suggested donation to the Friends of the SAC to cover instructor costs.
