Avalanche Awareness Class

The Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) offers free avalanche classes to the public throughout our forecast area. These classes are a short format, less than two hour, multi-media presentation geared towards the novice wintertime backcountry user. 

If you or your group is interested in hosting an NWAC Avalanche Awareness Class please request a course HERE.

Please note that all Avalanche Awareness Classes will be held virtually for the remainder of 2021. The reintroduction of in-person classes will be evaluated in the New Year.


Contact Katie Smith, NWAC’s Outreach Coordinator, for more information or questions about free awareness classes.
