Thank You Stevens Pass!

Har­lan Shep­pard, one of our most expe­ri­enced avalanche instruc­tors, recent­ly took a break from being a rock star on the slopes to ask us to send a thank you to an orga­ni­za­tion that’s been instru­men­tal in our avalanche edu­ca­tion pro­grams: Stevens Pass.

Through­out the win­ter and spring, we hold many of our ski and avalanche pro­grams at and around Stevens Pass. We couldn’t do it with­out Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er Chris Rudolph, the Studly Stevens Pass Ski Patrol, and all the oth­er won­der­ful peo­ple on the moun­tain. They pro­vide us with lift tick­ets so that stu­dents on our avalanche cours­es can expe­ri­ence the widest pos­si­ble vari­ety of ter­rains and con­di­tions; they pro­vide class­room space for our evening lec­tures; and they’re long­time sup­port­ers of avalanche education.

Haven’t got­ten out to dig a test pit this win­ter? It’s not to late to take an avalanche course with Moun­tain Mad­ness – check out our course offer­ings here. Already an avalanche expert? Con­sid­er sup­port­ing the North­west Weath­er & Avalanche Cen­ter by buy­ing a tick­et to the Snowball.
