Snowmachine Specific – Avalanche Awareness and Rescue at AMDS

November 30, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

| Free

Join CNFAIC forecasters at Alaska Mining and Diving Supply for a discussion on Avalanche Awareness and Rescue. Topics addressed will be:

  • Recognizing safe zones vs. avalanche terrain, not always as simple as it sounds…
  • Situational awareness – clues to watch for to help determine an unstable snowpack
  • Rescue – what’s new with rescue gear (i.e., airbags) and what really saves lives
  • Backcountry responsibility – it’s not just our group out there

We hope to see you and your riding buddies Wednesday, Nov 30th from 6:30 till 8:00pm!!
