Join CNFAIC forecasters for a FREE hands-on and in-the-snow avalanche beacon practice!! Hosted by the Anchorage Snowmobile Club!
This 1.5 hour informal rescue practice is geared for all user groups. Grab your friends and join us before hitting the hills!! Great intro or refresher!
WHERE: Turnagain Pass (motorized parking lot) – Look for the blue CNFAIC Avalanche trailer.
We will focus on practicing with your avalanche beacon, probe and shovel. We work on strategic shoveling techniques and talk about common rescue mistakes.
This session is open to everyone and anyone, novices and experts, that recreate in avalanche terrain – snowmachiners, skiers, kicker-builders, etc!! Practicing our rescue skills is a must for all of us. This will be a fun hour and a half that could help save a life in the future.
The Anchorage Snowmobile club will be providing snacks and coffee! We hope to see you all there!
