2014/2015 Season Mountain Safety Seminar Notice

We will be holding our annual Winter Mountain Safety Seminar for beginners.  The seminar is divided into two classes, a classroom lecture and a hands-on training.

You can join both or either of them.

The registration fee is very reasonable comparing to a general two-day avalanche accident prevention seminar.  Therefore, it will be a good news for those who have been hesitating to take such program due to the high attendance fee.  We encourage you to join us, weather you have have already taken such trainings before or you are a beginner.
