The Scholarship program will not be offered during the 19/20 season

The Avy 1 Scholarship program is offering one AIARE Level 1 avalanche scholarship in partnership with Oregon Ski Guides. 

The way it works

The idea behind the scholarship fund is to increase avalanche awareness and safety in the Pacific Northwest, with a focus on the Oregon Cascades. The scholarship recipient will be given an AIARE Level 1 avalanche course for free from Oregon Ski Guides . In return, recipients will “pay forward” what they learn by spending a day at a popular backcountry access point talking to users about the merits of avalanche safety and preparedness.

How do I apply

It's easy, become a COAA member and your automatically entered. A drawing will occur at the beginning of the 18/19 season and the winner announced. Your class and trailhead day will be scheduled for the 18/19 season.
