The Northwest Avalanche Center (NWAC) provides free Avalanche Awareness Classes to the public throughout our forecast area. These classes are short format, 90-minute, multimedia presentations geared towards the novice wintertime backcountry user. Classes cover how to access avalanche and mountain weather forecasts, recognize basic signs of avalanche danger, and next steps for continuing education.
