NWAC Going Deep Workshop: Transitioning to Spring
« on: 03/25/14, 05:46 PM »

Join us for the final installment of the Going Deep Workshop Series at Second Ascent on April 10:

Making the Transition from Winter to Spring: How to Plan Big Lines and Multi-day Tours Without a Daily NWAC Avalanche Forecast

Spring is here! With the change of season comes better weather and longer days—the perfect recipe for big objectives and multi-day tours. You've likely taken an avalanche class and have winter backcountry experience, however at some point every April, NWAC shifts out of daily forecast operations leaving the spring traveler without the valuable tool of a daily avalanche forecast. So now what?

Most modern avalanche education uses a regional avalanche forecast as the building block for tour planning and snow stability. Without the daily forecast, it can be unnerving to figure out when and where to go. Going Deep Session #4 is aimed at equipping you with the tools to evaluate conditions leading to good decisions in the backcountry. We'll focus on how to plan and execute a tour without the daily forecast, tips and tricks on how to time your tour with the weather, and what to look for in the spring snowpack so you don't get caught in the shed cycle.
