Scheduled on Nov 4, 2009

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, be prepared.

In this free clinic 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 and practical perspective, and they share their knowledge with you.

Cost: Free
Time: 8pm
Location: Boulder Rock Club (2829 Mapleton Ave. Boulder CO. 80301)
Free Avery Beer!
