The OSSA Avalanche Program is designed with three main objectives.
Objective 1 - "Get the training"
Objective 2 - "Get the Gear"
Objective 3 - "Get the forecast"
This year OSSA will provide the clubs with a rescue training class and an Avalanche basics class. In addition we will be working with A3 certified avalanche professionals coordinating courses throughout Oregon.
