The class will consist of two nights of classroom lectures on January 29th and 31st from 6:00-10:00pm in Carlsbad with the field sessions being held at Mt. Baldy on February 2nd and 3rd from 8:00am - 4:00pm. The cost for the entire class is $165. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or you can email me at avalanche@socalnsp.org.
