Diva Day – SheJumps Avalanche Awareness Class
January 11 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm| $10.00
Gone are the days when women would defer to their male counterparts for safe travel in the backcountry. The ratio of men to women is shifting into an even split, and no one in avalanche country should rely on friends — male or female — to lead them through the playground in safety. Thanks to organizations such as SheJumps, Friends of the Payette Avalanche Center, and our Brundage Ski Patrol and Backcountry Cat Ski Guides we are here to help women increase their outdoor skills, and gain confidence in decision-making and learn to trust their intuition while sharpening their knowledge in the backcountry.
Because women often learn differently, an all-female course can create a unique environment that caters to female interaction and support. When women get together to hone hard skills and talk backcountry safety, the result can be remarkable.
Our all-female instructors will teach the basics of playing in avalanche terrain. Participants will be introduced to the basics in avalanche education including how to use your safety gear, an intro to snow science and safe travel in avalanche terrain.
What to Bring: Beacon, probe, shovel, gear to be outside.
Space is limited to 30.
Cost is a $10.00 donation to SheJumps
