Tuesday, March 5, 2024


The Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center is hosting a free public Introduction to Avalanches class for Spanish speakers that is very likely the first of its kind in the United States, according to executive director Hannah Marshall.

The Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center has partnered with Sun Valley Company to deliver the Introduction to Avalanches class for Spanish speakers. The presentation will cover basic concepts about snow, avalanches, and traveling safely in and near avalanche terrain. Individuals of all ages and abilities are welcome.

The class will take place from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, at the Sun Valley Inn’s Limelight Room C. Admission is free and no pre-registration is required. All attendees will be entered into a raffle.

La presentación cubrirá conceptos básicos sobre la nieve, las avalanchas y cómo desplazarse en la nieve con seguridad dentro y cerca del terreno de avalanchas. Ya sea que esquíes, hagas snowboard, andes con raquetas de nieve, trineos o simplemente vivas cerca de las montañas, ¡esta presentación es para ti! Además de cubrir el desplazamiento por el terreno, también hablaremos sobre dónde podría interactuar con las avalanchas en su vida diaria. La presentación tendrá una duración aproximada de una hora y media. ¡Todos los asistentes participarán en un sorteo!
