Backcountry Tech Talk and Airbag Test

Wednesday, January 10, 2018 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Are you curious about all the gear you need to go backcountry skiing or want to learn about the newest gear? Do you wonder where to get information on backcountry and avalanche conditions? Then you won't want to miss this event!

Join us for a Backcountry Gear Tech Talk and learn about the different types of gear you can use for everything from everyday adventures to emergency situations including Ortovox Avabag, new probes, Garmin Inreach devices, GPS watches, Jetforce packs and more. Bring your own gear that you have questions about or to learn advanced features.

There are so many websites and apps out there it's hard to know which are reputable. We'll have a discussion about remotely logging condtions, crowd sourced avalanche observations, guidebooks and apps.

The session concludes with an airbag party! This is your chance to blow off your airbag and get a free refill or try out an airbag.

Come at 6 pm for beer, nachos and best seating. Formal presentation starts at 6:30 pm. Huge raffle benefitting Sierra Avalanche Center.

Special thanks to our presenting sponsor ORTOVOX for making this series possible! For 30 years ORTOVOX has been the most successful producer of avalanche equipment, backpacks and merino outer wear for alpine sports throughout the year. Come check out their products at Tahoe Mountain Sports.
