In this 1-hour, free avalanche awareness clinic, our expert guides give an introduction to how avalanches happen, what they look like, and how to avoid them.
- Types of Avalanches
- Avalanche Terrain
- Snowpack Analysis
- Weather Considerations
- Avalanche Decision-making
- Trip Planning and Preparation
- Travel Techniques
- Education Opportunities
Our guides are American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education(AIARE)-trained to teach avalanche courses, and they also spend some 300 days a year in the field—they KNOW snow from an academic, personal, and practical perspective. Let them share their knowledge with you!
The clinic starts at 6:00pm at Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project. Come early to make backcountry skiing/riding partners, grab a tasty brew and snag a seat (first come first served).
This event is free, but please RSVP with a free ticket so we can get an accurate seat count. See you there!
