Avy Clinic at Bent Gate Mountaineering Oct 23 8pm

Avalanche Awareness Clinic at Bent Gate Mountaineering October 23, 8-9pm.

Every year, avalanches are one of the leading causes of death among backcountry enthusiasts. Our home turf, Colorado, consistently leads the nation in avalanche fatalities. If you plan on spending time in high, snowy country, be prepared.

This free avalanche awareness clinic is an introduction to how avalanches are created, what they look like, and how to avoid them. The clinic will be taught by guides from the Colorado Mountain School, the state's premiere backcountry skiing, mountaineering, and climbing guide service.

Topics covered include:
Types of avalanche
Avalanche terrain
Snowpack analysis
Weather considerations
Avalanche decision-making
Trip planning and preparation
Travel techniques

For more information about Avalanche courses offered by the Colorado Mountain School, call (800) 836-4008 x3.
