Backcountry December Newsletter

The backcountry program is up and running!  November held one hour avalanche awareness talks for all teams put on by the American Avalanche Institute and Teton County Search and Rescue.  This was a great way to get our minds thinking about backcountry safety and avalanche awareness!

December is our busiest month as far as avalanche awareness training goes.  We will have half and full day, interactive and field based sessions for the U14, U16 and Freeride teams. Again these will be hosted by the great instructors at AAI.  At JHMR we will have mountain safety programs put on by the ski patrol for alpine and freeride teams.  See side panel or the Backcountry Program page for exact dates and more details.

We are also looking to fill just a few more spots for the guided ski trip in Grand Teton National Park.  This is a full day event on Janurary 2nd open to all JHSC athletes.  Sign up by mid December to reserve a spot.
In addition to the guided tour a parent-athlete companion rescue course is scheduled for January 12.  Signup deadline for companion rescue course is January 1.  Please email for more information or to sign up.
