Avalanche Education Opportunities
November 6, 2020

Avalanche terrain is all around Bozeman, and BSF encourages all our athletes (yes, even Nordic) to take advantage of these avalanche education opportunities.

Parents, even if your kids aren't entering "avalanche" terrain yet, we encourage you to review some of this material and begin the education process. Knowing the basics of avalanche safety is an incredibly important part of being a skier (even if you're "just" skiing at Bridger Bowl).


Anyone can participate in this (and you must complete this webinar to participate in the GNFAC field session).

Dates and times for the 90-minute BRASS Webinar:

Thursday, Nov. 12     7 - 8:30 pm MST
Thursday, Nov. 19     5 - 6:30 pm MST
Thursday, Dec. 3       5 - 6:30 pm MST

*Part of the BRASS webinar includes viewing Off Piste, a film about two U.S. Ski Team skiers who died in an avalanche. This does contain a graphic reenactment of the accident. You can preview the movie HERE, if you'd like.



Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center (GNFAC) has partnered with BSF to provide a free avalanche awareness training field course for BSF athletes.

10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at Bridger Bowl

Athletes must:

  • Be age 12+ (U14+)
  • Register and attend a BRASS Foundation webinar (info above)

Enrollment will be capped at 12, with a waitlist. *We are keeping a very low student-to-instructor ratio (4:1). We will open up more spots if additional instructors become available. For those without a Bridger Bowl pass, you will get a complimentary 1-ride lift ticket for the field course.
