Snowmobile Avalanche Education

The Sierra Avalanche Center is proud to announce and offer motorized-specific avalalanche level 1 classes. This is a 3 day / 24 hour class provided by grants from the California OHV Division and  Nevada Commision on Off Highway Vehicles. The purpose of these classes is to teach participants to use a repeatable process to make decisions and manage risk while riding in avalanche terrain.

Registration for classes will open 6 weeks before each course start date. Classes are scheduled for Jan 20-22, Feb 10-12, Feb. 24-26 for CA OHV Classes and March 17-19, 2017 for the Nevada OHV course.

Please check back for registration details and go to the course information for the specific class to register. A wait list for each course will be populated to make sure we fill each class.

Participants will need avalanche rescue equipment (beacon, shovel, probe) and a registered sled in proper functioning order.  Space is limited and we want to fill these classes with committed individuals so please only register if you are serious about participating.

Space is limited to 10 students per class and preregistration is mandatory.
