Schweitzer ski patrol is encouraging and offering weekly free "Transceiver Sundays" (clock tower at 10:00 a.m.) to all interested public with two permanent practice areas and one more difficult challenge that is on a less regular basis. All they ask is that the public covers up their tracks and if practicing digging techniques, please replace your divot. This is a great way to keep on your A game for those venturing out of bounds.
Know Before You Go
Parents, attend an evening avalanche awareness class with your kids. Or just tell them they have to go.

This 2 hour class will give you and your kids introductory knowledge on how to read an avalanche advisory, the necessary avlanche safety gear, and more places to get knowledge and information. All snowgoers are welcome! 6-8PM at the Sandpoint Ranger District.
