CSAS News: March 2009

CSAS Hosts AIARE Level III Avalanche Professionals Course in March 2009

From March 9-14, 2009 the CSAS provided our Schmidt building facility to the American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) for their Level III class of 22 avalanche professionals from throughout North America.  Days began before dawn with weather observations just outside the building, followed by lectures and planning sessions inside, and often ended with additional lectures or discussions in the evening, following daily field excursions.
