Telluride & Regional Avalanche Education

Why take an avalanche education course or class? The question should really be why not! With scholarship assistance from the Peter Inglis Avalanche Education Fund (learn more about that here), there are no excuses not to elevate or continue your learning in the backcountry. To help you out, we’ve put together a list of course providers in the Telluride and San Juan region. Just click the links below to see all of the options for avalanche education that exist within our region! 

In addition to the courses listed below, most guide services in the Telluride region offer custom courses. So grab your ski/snowboard buddies and progress your learning and education this winter. Remember: if you don’t know, don’t go. Or, better yet, hire a guide. You can learn more about the guidelines for these courses by visiting the American Avalanche Association’s website here.
