Introduction to Avalanches Field Day

Introduction to Avalanches Field Day

Join the Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center instructors for a field day covering avalanche rescue basics, snowpack layering, avalanche terrain identification, and basic backcountry travel.

Please note- you need to have attended a Friends’ Introduction to Avalanches presentation prior to participating in the field day.

There is a $50 suggested donation to the Friends of SAC to cover instructor costs. Donations can be made on (click the donate button) or via Venmo @sawtooth-avalanche. On your donation, please note that this is in conjunction with a field day. Thank you!

We use a pre-registration system for courses due to high demand. Please sign up for a field day using this Field Day Sign Up Form:

We will send out more information about the course in the week leading up to it. We will meet at the SNRA and then spend the day near the SNRA or on Galena Pass. You will need a way to travel over snow (snowshoes, touring skis, splitboard…)

Please reach out to Annie at with any questions.
