Avalanche Rescue Training Center
In our commitment to safety, Snowbasin is pleased to present our Avalanche Rescue Training Center. Built in cooperation with Wasatch Backcountry Rescue and the "Are You Beeping" and "Stay On Top Of It" public awareness campaigns, the center offers backcountry enthusiasts an opportunity to sharpen their rescue skills in the safety of a controlled environment. Located next to the Ski Patrol building near the Main Plaza (at the base, the Avalanche Rescue Training Center allows users to practice finding one to four buried "targets" in the snow using their avalanche transceivers (provided by user) and probes (provided by Snowbasin). A flashing light and siren indicate when a target has been found, and the rescue time is recorded. The training facility is free to the public and is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
