BRIDGEPORT, California…The Bridgeport Ranger District of the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest is presenting a FREE snowmobile avalanche safety clinic for eight attendees at the Mammoth Lakes Visitor Center Auditorium next Friday, March 14, from 6:30-8:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 15, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at the Bridgeport Winter Recreation Area. Friday’s attendance is required to join the practice clinic on Saturday. This two-day clinic will provide practical advice for snowmobilers who ride in avalanche terrain.
Snowmobilers’ access to steep, rugged, and high-elevation terrain often places them in areas exposed to high avalanche risk; fortunately, there are ways to stay safe and have fun. Anyone who is a mountain snowmobiler should attend. Even one small piece of information gleaned from this class can make a difference between having a really good powder day or a really bad day by accidentally triggering an avalanche.
