Hi, my name is Ching. I am a return UAF student with a senior standing in geosciences: geophysics. I am expecting to graduate this spring that I still need to take a 300 400 level geoscience class fitting in my schedule. I am so glad to find this online course! As I already work in the ski industry as a sport manager. Avalanche is the hazard I cared the most. It is extremely sad seeing the global warming with the uncertain weather in winter caused the avalanche. Almost every year I see the mountain community has someone passed away in avalanche. I personally never experienced one, and don’t ever want to experience the avalanche. I took the avalanche rescue course before to just play safe in snow.
