Overview from REI
The REI-AIARE Avalanche Awareness Workshop target is for the winter backcountry traveler. Whether you ski, snowshoe, snowboard or snowmobile in the backcountry, recognition of avalanche danger is an essential and potentially lifesaving skill. This session introduces and explains where and why avalanches occur and provides a basic approach to managing risk in the backcountry. Learn to access local avalanche bulletins and weather reports, recognize basic signs of avalanche danger, and learn simple ways to help avoid avalanche danger.

For those interested we can go to Edge Brewing down the street for some food and drinks afterwards!
