Free Avalanche Awareness Lecture
Our avalanche awareness lecture is by no means a replacement for an AIARE Level 1 avalanche course. It is great refresher for those already traveling in avalanche terrain, and a solid foundation for beginners to build upon. The lecture presents attendees an opportunity to explore more of what it means to travel in backcountry/avalanche terrain, the hazards, and why it can be so much fun. We'll talk about gear, terrain, snowpack and more. In addition to our AIARE-qualified instructors, National Weather Service (NWS) hydrologist, Brian McInerney, will speak about current weather patterns in the Wasatch Mountains. You will also have an opportunity to learn more about our AIARE 1 and AIARE 2 courses if you intend on traveling in the backcountry/avalanche terrain.
