Thanks to SEABA for offering class

 


During the winter months, eighth grade students at the middle school, led by Jon Gellings of Southeast Alaska Backcountry Adventures, dug their way through the Avalanche One certification course. A big thank you to Jon and SEABA for helping put together this valuable classroom and field experience for our youth. There are now 21 certified eighth-graders in our community who are better prepared for safe experiences in the winter mountains.
