Looking into the (snow) crystal ball ...
Shown here is #CMSguide @jasonsnipeyourlinemaurer looking at the facet snow crystals on a collapsed layer near the bottom of the snowpack. Facets are often one of the contributing factors to avalanches in continental snowpacks like Colorado. If you want to learn more about snow stability analysis, check out our AIARE Level 2 course, available in Rocky Mountain National Park, the San Juan mountains, or hut-based near Aspen.

Our first On-Snow avalanche clinics of the season will be held on Lizard Head Pass on December 1st, and 2nd, from 10am-3pm. Whether you’re looking to go on your very first tour, or just get out on the snow to refresh your skills with a group, you will not want to miss this! As always this course is FREE, all we ask is that you register online on our website (link in bio). Information about schedule of events and what to bring will be on the registration page and confirmation emails. Be sure to do this soon, as both days will likely SELL OUT! .
On Friday, November 30th, at 6pm, we will be hosting a KBYG in-class avalanche clinic in Rico, CO at The Enterprise Bar & Grill @the_enterprise_bar ! This will be a great introduction as to what we will be going over that weekend on the snow, and give you a chance to meet and hangout with the instructors and participants who will be out there all weekend! We hope to see you all there! Pray for snow!
