On Wednesday February 5th at 6:30 we are hosting an Avalanche conversation presented by Michael Kennedy and Blase Reardon at the shop. The other working title was "How to travel in avalanche terrain for decades and live as long as Michael Kennedy".
With this avalanche forum we are going for an entirely new way to discus travel, packing and group dynamics in this dangerous terrain. We are trying to focus on audience participation and drawing on a valley's worth of experience in backcountry travel.
Check out the handouts that MK and Blase have been working on.
Avalanche Essentials- The nuts and bolts of what to carry in the backcountry.
Avalanche Resources- A series of resources and links any backcountry skier should know and love.
Stop by the shop for a beer and some knowledge and share your own experience.
