SNOWMOBILERS: Introduction to Avalanches with Field Course

The Mt Shasta Avalanche Center is proud to announce its continued avalanche awareness and companion rescue workshops specifically for snowmobilers! Snowmobile avalanche fatalities have been on the rise in the last decade. As riders ourselves, we look forward to putting on these day long, free classes for you. We are stoked and ready to ride!

Come spend the day with the MSAC professionals as we provide you with avalanche and rescue information specifically catered toward the snomobilers mind. The day will start at 9am at the US Forest Service conference room (204 W Alma Street). We will provide a multimedia presentation with industry leading information that will get your juices flowing. Following, all riders will meet up in the Old Ski Bowl on the south side of Mt Shasta. The rest of the day will be spent practicing beacon, shovel and probe skills, terrain identification and management as well as scenarios. This course is not to be missed! Please email Nick Meyers at to register. Arrive at 9am at the Forest Service with your sled and be ready to go!


You must have a beacon, shovel and probe to participate. (The MSAC has a few extra on a first come, first serve basis) You will also need a snowmobile (or ride double) with a helmet on all riders.

Don't miss out! For more information call 530-926-9617 or email:
