Lone Pine State Park Beacon Park Residency
From February 8-29, 2020 Friends of Flathead Avalanche Center will host our Beacon Park out of Lone Pine State Park. We will have an assignment of classes in conjunction with the residency, as well as a celebration the last day the park will be there which will include classes, food truck(s), tabling partners, games, and more.
Classes will include:
Avalanche Awareness Class
FREE • Saturday, February 8, 2020, at 1:00 PM
in the Visitors Center
Ladies Partner Rescue Class with SheJumps
We had such great response and interest from our December Class we are offering a second in conjunction with the Beacon Park at Lone Pine. This will be a similar course to what we offered last time. We will have a couple of instructors running partner search drills through the park and with each other. This will be a great way to refresh or dive deeper into learning these critical skills.
Registration is not yet open, stay tuned for the link. You must register in advance to participate.
