Bettie Course: Rec 1 Avalanche Certification

Feb 24 - Feb 26, 2023

Join Dusty and Carlie as they venture into Rocky Mountain National Park for an intense educational experience that culminates in a Rec-1 Avy certification.

This Bettie Course is offered to women, and individuals that identify as women, in collaboration with KMAC in Estes Park, CO. This experience is a three-day course that begins by providing a basic foundation for understanding avalanche hazards and developing safe travel practices in and around avalanche terrain. The goal is for students to learn the essentials of snow-pack science, avalanche rescue, terrain analysis, and to give each student a solid framework for making informed decisions. This course includes in-person instruction, video and discussion, and at least 16 hours of time in the outdoors. This course is all in-person in Estes Park, CO.
