RIGBY — A motor sports apparel company is offering an avalanche safety class that the public is invited to attend.
KLIM and Mike Duffy with Avalanche1 will be hosting the free rescue skills class that will include understanding avalanche forecasts, different types of avalanches, rescue techniques and escape.
This will be a hands on class, according to a KLIM news release, so attendees are asked to bring transceivers.
“This year we’ve seen a higher amount of dangerous avalanche conditions and we want to do all that we can to ensure that the riding community understands the signs and dangers of riding in the backcountry,” the news release states. “This is recommended training course for all snowmobile and snowbike riders.”
The class is open to the public and will be held Monday, Jan. 29 beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the KLIM headquarters on County Line Road in Rigby.
