Learn how to make decisions that keep yourself and your partner safe at this event on Wednesday, November 13 at Craft Reno.
Travis Fiest from the Sierra Avalanche Center will lead us through the SAC’s “Daily Flow,” a risk management plan that you can use every time you head into the backcountry. This is an incredibly useful tool to put in your toolbox of backcountry decision making. After discussing the Daily Flow, you’ll get to put it into practice in small breakout groups and run through scenarios using past avalanche forecasts.
Check out how motorized backcountry users “Go With the Flow” in this great video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p__deMBHjTM
Doors open at 6 pm. Give yourself plenty of time to find a parking spot and grab a beer and snacks before the formal presentation begins at 6:30 pm.
Bring cash for the huge raffle benefiting the Sierra Avalanche Center, Tahoe’s local avalanche forecasting center which provides a wealth of information to backcountry skiers, riders, and sledders. Their mission is to inform and educate the public about backcountry avalanche conditions in the greater Tahoe area. There will be tons of swag from Ortovox, Garmin, Spark R&D, Black Diamond, Flylow Gear, Dynafit, Weston, and Julbo.
Our Avalanche Education Series will be held in two locations this year: Alibi Ale Works - Truckee Public House and Craft Wine and Beer in Reno. These two venues have distinctly different atmospheres. Join us at Alibi in Truckee for a more festive and, at times, rowdy environment. If you prefer a more focused, intimate atmosphere, come to our workshops at Craft Wine and Beer in Reno! Each event in the series is a stand-alone presentation.
