The Avalanche Science program isn’t your typical Avalanche Awareness class. The curriculum is designed for those already working in the snow safety and avalanche industry. The program will work with the schedule of a working professional, offering an opportunity to expand knowledge and skills as it relates to avalanches and snow science.

Applications for the Avalanche Science Program will be reviewed on June 15. Applications received after June 15 will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. This one-of-a-kind training program will take your career or interest in snow, weather and avalanches to the next level. We hope you will be part of this innovative program beginning in August. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions. lvaviscience@coloradomtn.edu
