An Evening with the Staff of the NWAC
« on: 02/15/14, 08:31 PM »

Going Deep: A Series of Backcountry Decision Making Workshops. Session #1

Where: Second Ascent, Ballard
When: Thurs, Feb 20

Title: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Avy Forecasting (But Were Afraid to Ask):
An Evening with the Staff of the Northwest Avalanche Center

What's the difference between 'high' and 'considerable' avalanche ratings?  How can I apply the NWAC forecast to the slope I want to ski?  How deep is a 'deep instability,' anyway? 

If you've ever asked yourself these questions  or any others about NWAC, come join us for an evening with our forecasters, field observers, and staff to hear how it all works. 

The first half of the evening will be a lecture focusing on how to make the most of the new NWAC avy forecast.  The second half will be a casual question-and-answer session.  Please bring any and all questions about NWAC forecasts; how to use the forecasts; and questions about avalanches themselves. 

Other Details:
This evening is geared towards to people who have some backcountry experience to those who are seasoned backcountry travelers. Skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, and snowmobilers who are looking to improve their decision making skills are encouraged to attend.
