What's happening?

November Presentation- Tuesday, December 13

Know Before You Go:  Avalanche Awareness with Jane Quinn
Tuesday, December 13- 6:00PM

Jane will be presenting the ‘Know Before You Go’ seminar established by the Utah Avalanche Center. Other topics will cover success and challenge in the backcountry. As more and more people venture up into the mountains, she is committed to helping everyone know how to use their gear and how to make good decisions.

Jane Quinn has been an avalanche educator since 2016, beginning her career in the backcountry zones near Bend, Oregon. In fall of 2017, she and her family moved to Helena, MT where she continued teaching the AIARE (American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education) and AAA (American Avalanche Association) curriculums. In the spring of 2018, See Jane Adventures, LLC was formed, focusing on mountain bike skills in the spring/summer/fall and avalanche education in the winter. Teaching, assisting, and continuing her education has allowed her to experience a variety of snowpacks in various locations including:
– Silverton, CO
– Jackson, WY
– Mt. Hood, OR
– Three Sisters, OR
– Seattle, WA
– Driggs, ID

Jane has also lead or assisted with avalanche courses and outdoor winter survival clinics through Wild Women Outdoors, Missoula-based AERIE Backcountry Medicine, and Idaho-based Selkirk Outdoor Leadership and Education (SOLE).
Since 2017 she has had long-standing contracts for instructing for Montana State University (Bozeman), Montana Backcountry Yurts (Helena), and the West Central Avalanche Foundation (Missoula).

Jane enjoys empowering individuals through outdoor education with the understanding that many of our outdoor skills also transfer into life skills: decision-making, group management, communication, etc…… and also creating a fun and inclusive environment for all!
