Show us proof that you jammed out to Bob Dylan, brush your teeth at the top of the mountain, and/or carried heavy stuff uphill for extra giveaways. More info…

Educational Events 2019
Practical Protocols for Snow Professionals
Steep Life Workshop
Dates for 2019 TBA
Traditional Avalanche and Ski Guide Training has been focused on snow science and snowpit-based methodology, but this leaves out many important practical protocol techniques. In this workshop industry leaders will share the techniques and thought processes they have developed and used in the field. With more than 60+ years of combined experience, this team has spent a lot of time innovating in the mountains, and has gained experiences and insights that are essential for ski/snowboard guides, ski patrol and aspiring professionals. Anyone that accesses mountains from the top down or spends time in avalanche terrain can benefit from this cutting edge workshop offered at Silverton Mountain.
By attending the workshop attendees will:
- Gain a better understanding of how to read mountains
- Learn to skillfully recognize hazards
- Develop a thought process for working larger lines in steeper terrain
The Training Workshop is useful for anyone currently working in avalanche terrain, but is most helpful for Professional Ski Patrollers and Professional Ski/Snowboard Guides working in mid or high alpine terrain.
Attendees should have an existing Level 2 Avalanche or equivalent, professional patrol or ski/board guiding experience, or be an aspiring professional with industry experience.

We look forward to an exciting and educational time with you in the steeps!
