SheJumps- Introduction to Avalanche Safety Clinic for Women

The SheJumps / Oregon Ski Guides Intro to Avalanche Safety is a day-long course designed for beginner- to intermediate-level backcountry skiers and snowboarders, providing hands-on avalanche instruction and companion rescue training.

The course is designed specifically for women and female-identifying people who are starting or refreshing their avalanche education. This is a great opportunity to prepare for a more in-depth three-day AIARE 1 course. Students will travel on snow with touring skis, splitboards, or snowshoes.

The day begins with classroom instruction on avalanche types and characteristics, avalanche terrain identification, and local weather and avalanche resources. In the field, we will introduce the fundamentals of companion rescue, including an overview of critical rescue gear and instruction on its use. We will wrap up the day with a short tour to reinforce classroom topics in backcountry ski terrain.

Student requirements:

On-snow travel gear (touring skis, splitboard, snowshoes), ski-specific backpack, avalanche rescue equipment (beacon, shovel, probe), and lunch. For our Bend course, rental ski packs and avalanche rescue equipment are available from Oregon Ski Guides; rental on-snow travel gear is available from our friends at Mountain Supply of Oregon and Pine Mountain Sports.

What to expect:

This course will require a few hours of self paced online study. For the day of the course, please come prepared to spend the day in the outdoors by bringing ample food, beverages, and clothing. We can accommodate a wide range of fitness levels and abilities; contact Oregon Ski Guides with any questions.
