After spending two seasons cutting her teeth within the resorts in the Wasatch Range, Whitney is excited to expand on her snow science knowledge and delve into Utah s famous backcountry.. We invite you to take the journey with Whitney, as she progresses through her Level 1 Avalanche course, and puts her skills to the test alongside the professionals at WBR..

It is currently located at Mid Mountain on the Chicane ski run - about 100 Yards north of it's old location.. It's still a great, convienent place to stop and do a few quick drills to keep your skills sharp on your way to Tombstone and beyond, or use it to learn your beacon and hone your skills..
