Mountain Education in Tahoe teaches snow safety skills to PCT and CDT thru 
hikers, too.

Since many of the CDT NoBo hikers will be starting in May, our April and May 
Snow Advanced Courses (SAC) that teach steep snow skills over Forester Pass 
are being attended by CDT thrus to get ready for the San Juans before they 
start from Mexico.

Hi Peggy,

I don't know if you are interested or would have the time but 
backpackinglight.com is having a class in Montana soon about winter hiking 
skills.
