To encourage avalanche hazard awareness, RMRG offers dryland avalanche transceiver trainings annually in early December. No matter how novice or advanced you are, practicing is a must to maintain proficiency.

Training at Chautauqua Ranger Cottage in Boulder. Sessions are typically about two hours long. Email RSVP required:

Participants can use their own transceivers or RMRG will loan students a free transceiver for the training session with a deposit of a driver's license. You do need your own warm clothes and headlamp.
