Backcountry discussion and season update

March 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC-6

Please join us for a spring backcountry awareness discussion and winter season update. The 2016-’17 winter is so far memorable for big storms and an anticipated January dry spell that wasn’t. It’s also been notable for the number of backcountry avalanche accidents and close calls. CAIC local forecaster Blase Reardon will summarize the season to date, giving an overview of the current snowpack, backcountry conditions, and recent avalanche activity. He’ll also discuss patterns and trends in the seasons. Special guest speaker is Colter Hinchcliffe, a local pro skier who was involved in one of this season’s incidents.

The event is free and open to the public, but donations to offset costs will be accepted via Paypal at [email protected] and at the door.

For more information, contact Mike Sladdin at 970-ERA-2SKI or [email protected].
