Avalanche Training Center

Located to the east of The Cliff Lodge, the Avalanche Rescue Training Center includes a control panel and buried transmitters to simulate avalanche victims. Users will select the number of "victims" for their practice session at the control panel and then receive computer-generated feedback at the completion of their search.

Free to the public throughout the winter.

The Avalanche Rescue Training Center is funded through Wasatch Backcountry Rescue, a volunteer organization made up of snow safety professionals and their avalanche rescue dogs.
