My internship with Northwest Avalanche Center’s (NWAC) Mt Baker Snow School (MBSS) spanned from February to May of 2023. During my time at Mt Baker Snow School, I was able to engage in lots of hands-on learning opportunities, both for myself and the students I was leading. Through the primary scope of my internship, which was leading student field trips, I was able to combine snow science knowledge from my Western classes with tools and guidance provided by MBSS to facilitate a fast paced, hands-on learning environment and get students excited about our mountain systems in Whatcom County. During MBSS, I learned the processes of snowpack analysis, as well as how the snowpack interacts with forces like weather, snow algae blooms, and even our own recreation.
