- Register for this self-paced Mountain Weather course and complete the quizzes for “Part 1: Foundation Topics” (and the other parts too if you have the additional time).

- Watch the powerful and educational documentary A Dozen More Turns -- just search on the film title to either watch on-line or to purchase a DVD (for only a few dollars). Write an essay (and submit in the format of a pdf file if you can) in which you identify at least three human/psychological factors that you think contributed to the incident, and in which you describe how you once succumbed to such a factor (in any context -- whether route selection in potential avalanche terrain or buying an item at the supermarket). Be prepared to deliver a very brief presentation on one of these factors at the Fall Session.
- Complete all 11 exercises at this route-founding tutorial, and take screen captures of all the successfully completed routes.
