“As backcountry touring grows in popularity, we want you to be prepared. We’re proud to partner with JHOLI to offer this amazing opportunity. Having confidence in snow stability and route selection comes via education and experience,” ​said Dan Abrams, Flylow president. “The big idea for this year’s giveaway is that you can pod up in the COVID era and do an avalanche course with friends or by yourself”

The winner of the contest will receive either an avy Level 1 or Level 2 course for up to four people, and can choose any available dates between January 1 and March 1, 2021. Each course includes 40 hours of classroom and guided field sessions.

The Level 1 course covers the basics of avalanche safety, from preparing to travel in avalanche terrain, to making basic decisions in the field, to best practices for using a beacon, shovel and probe.

The Level 2 course offers education for more experienced backcountry enthusiasts and leaders to build upon their decision making and avalanche knowledge, including evaluating factors critical to snow stability and terrain selection.
