The avalanche rescue training park at the Frisco Adventure Park is now open for the season, providing a free location for people to practice searching for buried avalanche transceivers.

Summit County Rescue Group said in a social media post Thursday, Jan. 25, that backcountry adventurers can now sharpen their transceiver search skills at the training park. Located on the left after the Nordic Center and Frisco Day Lodge at 621 Recreation Way, the training park is a collaboration between the town of Frisco and the rescue group.

Backcountry officials recommend that anyone traveling in potential avalanche terrain carry an avalanche transceiver, probe and shovel — and to know how to use that equipment in the case that someone is buried.
