Mountaineering courses in Idaho or Wyoming(Jackson area)?

Postby TimB » Thu Oct 20, 2011 4:36 am

Hello,
I am interested in taking an introductory mountaineering course. Something covering the fundamentals, such as navigation, use of crampons, ice axe, stuff of that nature?
I would prefer something in Idaho(Boise, Idaho Falls, etc.) but would consider Western Wyoming or even the Salt Lake City, Utah area.
