FREE 1.5 hr Avalanche Beacon Practice w/CNFAIC @ Turnagain Pass

February 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Join CNFAIC forecasters for a FREE hands-on and in-the-snow avalanche beacon practice!!!

This 1.5 hour informal beacon 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’ll also talk and work on strategic shoveling techniques and common 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. See you there!

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