Get Ready For Winter – Where To Find Your Local Avalanche Workshop 2018

Every year, the amount of people that have decided to explore past the boundaries of ski resorts continues to increase. We understand folks are trying to satisfy their thirst for powder but are they prepared when something goes wrong or to make the best decisions they can about conditions? When we’ve asked a few friends after their powder stories if they’ve had any avalanche training, the answer is normally a shocking “No.” Like driving a car without a seat belt, you can be fine, but when an accident does occur, you may end up going through the windshield. Regardless if you’re a beginner, intermediate or expert in the snow world, we HIGHLY recommend checking out your 2018 local avalanche workshop.
