Four Corners Snow and Avalanche Workshop (4SAW) Overview
Silverton Avalanche School invites you to the 2021 Four Corners Snow and Avalanche Workshop (4SAW). 4SAW is a continuing education and networking opportunity for avalanche practitioners and recreationists in the mountains of Southwest Colorado, Northwest New Mexico, Northern Arizona and Southern Utah. The Four Corners Snow & Avalanche Workshop (4SAW) will address avalanche operations, current snow and avalanche scientific research, technical innovations, avalanche safety, and celebrating mountain culture. Talks cover research, education and how to apply new tools for the avalanche professional and backcountry enthusiast. 4SAW compliments the workshops held by Colorado Avalanche Information Center and Utah Avalanche Center and is funded partially by the American Avalanche Association. 4SAW is an opportunity to hear from leading avalanche practitioners and take the next step in your backcountry education.
The mighty peaks, lofty summits, backcountry bowls and high basins of the Southern Rocky Mountains, annually replenished by the snows and slides of winter, are the water towers from which all life flows. 4SAW 2021 will encourage participants to share, explore and reflect upon the critical role our local mountains play in shaping the health and future of alpine environments and watersheds in the Southwestern US.
