This class offered by the Northwest Avalanche Center is based on American Avalanche Association guidelines. The combination of classroom and activity based learning is led by the NWAC Snowmobile Instructor Team and teaches skills including avalanche risk management and avalanche rescue. The BASC series is a great introduction for new riders, and a perfect refresher course for seasoned riders looking to update their skills. This 1-day course effectively prepares students for successfully completing a 3-day Level 1 Avalanche Course.

At NWAC, we do not want the cost of our offerings to be a limitation for participating. If financial assistance is required please reach out to jeff@nwac.us for information.

For additional information or questions, contact the NWAC Snowmobile Avalanche Education Coordinator by email; jeff@nwac.us, or phone (360)303-7215.
