Title: Final NWAC Going Deep Workshop 4/23
Post by: NWAC on 04/15/15, 10:50 AM
Going Deep: Making the Transition from Winter to Spring
Most modern avalanche education uses a regional avalanche forecast as the building block for tour planning and snow stability. Without that daily forecast, it can be unnerving to figure out when and where to go. This evening's Going Deep lecture is aimed at equipping people with tools to evaluate conditions leading to good decisions in the backcountry. We'll focus on how to plan and execute a tour without the help of an NWAC avalanche forecast. You'll also learn tips and tricks on how to time your tour with the weather along with gaining an understanding what to look for in the spring snowpack so you don't get caught in the shed cycle. Join us at Paddy Coyne's after the workshop for drinks and socializing. Each admission includes a beer ticket.
