Sign up for an Avalanche Safety Course
Friends of Idaho Panhandle Avalanche Center is excited to announce our line-up of avalanche safety courses for the 2023/24 winter season. We hope you will join us this winter to further your backcountry and avalanche safety education here in the Idaho Panhandle!
Avalanche Education for skiers and splitboarders, as well as snowmobilers and snowbikers
Our education season runs from late December to early April. Non-motorized classes are held at Schweitzer Mountain and Silver Mountain. Motorized courses are held in Priest Lake and Wallace, Idaho. Level 1 and 2 courses have a required classroom portion that can be completed online at your own pace. Courses follow the American Avalanche Association guidelines and are taught by A3 Member instructors.
