Time to sign up for Avalanche class!

The GNFAC is broadcasting again! Skiing can't be far behind! We had our first skier triggered avalanche already on Oct. 31, so hit up the GNFAC website, subscribe to their newsletter, watch the videos, and sign up for a class. Then, USE THE SKILLS YOU'VE LEARNED!

They are trying to do a showing of "A Dozen More Turns" tomorrow night in West Yellowstone. I haven't seen it yet, but I hear it is truly outstanding. Check the GNFAC site for details on the showing.


Now is the time to tune up on your avalanche skills. A full listing of our avalanche classes can be found online at You can also check out our online tutorials. Here are a few of the classes being offered:
