CMC Leadville, the highest altitude college campus in the country, hopes to raise awareness for backcountry safety and avalanche education through Twitter.
One thing is for sure in Leadville, Colorado; Leadville Knows Snow. At, 10,200 feet above sea level, snow isn’t just precipitation, it is a culture. This past winter has proven impressive in terms of powder accumulation, but with big snow years come big slide years. Colorado Mountain College in Leadville is an excellent community resource for those looking to educate themselves on avalanches and backcountry safety. CMC Leadville is dedicated to using the knowledge and experiences of their avalanche educators to raise awareness and help prevent unnecessary tragedies from occurring. Look to the @CMCLeadville twitter account from March 9-15th, for informative facts and helpful resources related to avalanche awareness and backcountry safety.
