Please note: This class is now full. Contact our patrol director (info below) to be put on a waiting list if any spots open up.
This course is a great value as it is through the National Ski Patrol (which means it cost about one third of other level one classes). Course includes three indoor sessions and two field sessions at Mission Ridge. Indoor Sessions meet at Central Washington Hospital in room D & E. Cost for course is $100 including book and is limited to the first 10 people to sign up. You can pre-register by calling (509) 663-6543 ext. 411 or email
