Spring Education & Activities 

Workshops, Resources, Activities

As of March 30th, NWAC has stopped backcountry avalanche forecasting for the season.

On March 23rd, Governor Inslee of Washington and Governor Brown of Oregon issued Stay at Home orders for the public regarding the COVID-19 outbreak. The directives are clear in that “to the maximum extent possible, individuals stay at home or in their place of residence.” Though we firmly believe in the value of backcountry travel, it is not an essential activity that outweighs the importance of slowing the spread of this virus. NWAC's full announcement can be found here..

Resources and Education for honing your backcountry skills from home.

You may find more time on your hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, so we'd like to offer a variety of workshops, resources, and activities to help refine and build your toolkit. These activities and workshops can all be done within the confines of your house or neighborhood that you can use later, when you're able to get out and recreate - either later this spring or next winter.

If you have an activity  you'd like to contribute to this page, please email cheri@nwac.us, and we'd be happy to consider adding it.
