Avy 2 Class

After four days in the field and classroom, I finished my level 2 avalanche course tonight. Yesterday we spent the day in Togwotee Pass digging snow pits to check stability, working on guiding skills, and practicing rescue scenarios. We also got some decent skiing in. I had never been to Togwotee before, so it was fun to do some exploring and see some new terrain. Definitely need to go head back up there soon.
