Hello! As we get into the winter months, we have the new dynamics of a colder season. I want to pass along some information that I am constantly utilizing to increase my knowledge. For some, this information is embedded within our hiker mentality. But for many of you who are new to Colorado, this can be useful.


I do not endorse REI or suggest any specific products, just merely informing you of the great workshops. I am not going to post all of them but REI has over 20 events on their calendar within the next few months. Most of them are free and I think the information is very valuable as we enter the snowy season. The events include the following topics; maps, compasses, avalanche awareness, winter survival skills, back country rescue, snow shoe workshops and winter back country essentials. Some of the avalanche seminars include staff from Colorado Avalanche Information Center(CAIC)

Here is the link to the Flagship(1416 Platte Street) store and their events. http://www.rei.com/stores/18


The people at Wilderness Exchange suggested to me, Friends Of Berthoud Pass. They are hosting several free avalanche courses in Denver, Boulder, Golden and Colorado Springs. Here is the link to their schedule. http://berthoudpass.org/2010/09/21/avalanche-courses-2010-2011/ As well as several fundraiser events to benefit CAIC and Friends of Berthoud Pass.


I will be at one of the snow shoe expos, trying to figure out which pair I will be investing in. See you soon!
