Free Snowmobile and Avalanche Safety Training
Posted on Wednesday, October 10th, 2012
 

Get ready for your snow adventures and you could WIN BIG!

Thanks to support from the Alaska Dept. of Public Safety and Alaska Division of Parks there are lots of opportunities to get the training you need to Live to Ride Another Day.

Whether you have been in Alaska your entire life or just arrived yesterday, it could save your life or that of a friend to learn and refresh your safety skills for traveling, playing and working outdoors in harsh, rugged environments.

Thanks to support from Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) Skidoo and a $15,000 grant from the Alaska Division of Parks – SnowTrac, the North America Outdoor Institute will be presenting free snowmobile and avalanche awareness training for outdoor recreation enthusiasts across Alaska this fall and winter.

These are free, fun, interactive training programs designed to help you have more fun, go further and return safely. Covers hazard assessment, trip planning, general snowmobile safety, route selection in avalanche prone areas, river and glacier travel, safety equipment and emergency response procedures.

Attend and you can enter to win a 2013 Skidoo Renegade Sport, an ABS airbag backpack system with shovel, snow saw and probe or a BCA shovel, probe and pack kit.
