February 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

| Free

Join CNFAIC forecasters and the Anchorage Snowmobile Club for a FREE hands-on and in-the-snow avalanche rescue workshop!!

This 1.5 hour informal rescue workshop is geared for all user groups. Grab your friends and join us before hitting the hills!!

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’ll also talk and work on strategic shoveling techniques and common mistakes.

This workshop 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 workshop will be a fun hour that could help save a life in the future. See you there!

**Don’t forget to bring your rescue gear: avalanche beacon, shovel, probe and snow clothes. We will have a few extras to borrow as well.
