Description: This multi-media talk has an exciting 15-minute video on avalanches plus a 1/2hr. PowerPoint on how to stay alive in avalanche terrain including terrain, snow stability, safe travel and rescue. Subjects include: avalanche rescue, how avalanches work, reading avalanche terrain, obvious clues to instability, avalanche weather, safe travel practices and essential equipment. This talk is presented by the staff of the Utah Avalanche Center, who are some of the foremost avalanche experts in the country.

As of this posting only 40 spots left--go to this link to secure your spot and register. With the snowshoeing hikes it is always good to have this knowledge before you head out.


The site will tell you if the event is full. I will be attending the Ladies Night Avalanche Awareness Event since I can not make this one -it is on December 2nd and will posted as a separate event.

    This was very informative. Like everyone has said, you have to register on REI's website. There is a waitlist and there were no-shows, so you can possibly get into the next one if it fills up before you register (but try to register, so much easier). It did go over a bit so don't be like me and figure you'll just eat afterwards :) I was pretty hungry by the time we got out and wishing I'd eaten so I could hang around and ask questions.

      Folks, I just signed up for the later course on 12.11 - not sure if it will help with anyone getting in on this one but thought I'd put it out there. Thxs.

      If the snow decides to actually hit there will be a snow shoe once a week with the exception of Christmas week.
