What is Snow School?
Snow Survey Training School is required for current and
new NRCS employees and cooperators that perform snow survey duties as part of
their job. Students from all over the country participate in an intense week of
training in data collection, safety and outdoor survival. As part of the winter
survival training, students learn to build snow shelters and bivouac one night
in the snow.
Most Snow Survey Training School instructors are NRCS
employees who work directly with the SSWSF Program. Instructors in avalanche and
outdoor survival are world-renowned experts in their fields. Course work is
about 50% classroom lecture and 50% field exercises.
