Announcement and General Information

 

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.

For questions or more information, contact Tony Tolsdorf (503) 414-3006.
