All Day

Annie DeAngelo

Join the Friends of the Sawtooth Avalanche Center instructors for a field day covering avalanche rescue basics, snowpack layering, avalanche terrain identification, and basic backcountry travel.

Please note-you need to have attended a Friends’ Introduction to Avalanches lecture prior to participating in the field day. See for lecture dates or email [email protected] to receive a virtual copy of the lecture.

We have moved to a pre-registration system for courses due to high demand! Please sign up for a field day using this Field Day Sign Up Form:

We will send out more information about the course in the week leading up to it. We will meet at the SNRA and then spend the day near the SNRA or on Galena Pass. You will need a way to travel over snow (snowshoes, touring skis, splitboard…)

There is a $40 suggested donation to the Friends of the SAC to cover instructor costs. Donations can be made at (click the donate button) or via Venmo @sawtooth-avalanche. On your donation, please note that this is in conjunction with a field day. Thank you!

Reach out to Annie at [email protected] with any questions.
