Every year, avalanches are one of the leading causes of death among backcountry enthusiasts. Our home turf, Colorado, consistently leads the nation in avalanche fatalities. If you plan on spending time in high, snowy country, you need to be informed prepared.

In these one hour free clinics our expert guides give an introduction to how avalanches happen, what they look like, and how to avoid them. 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!

Topics covered include:
— Types of avalanches
— Avalanche terrain
— Snowpack analysis
— Weather considerations
— Avalanche decision-making
— Trip planning and preparation
— Travel techniques
