An Avalanche Awareness Talk will be held on Wednesday Feb 28, 2018 at 6:30 pm at the AMC headquarters at City Square.
It is easy to dismiss avalanches as a hazard that don't affect people in New England, but unfortunately people do die in avalanches here in the Northeast, and you don't have to be a skier either, this hazard can affect climbers and hikers too.
Fortunately the risk of this hazard can be mitigated through knowledge and education. This talk is a first step in that process, it makes one aware of the hazard and presents a launching point for furthering your knowledge about avalanches and the risk they pose.
The talk will be about 45 - 60 minutes long and will incorporate photos, video and discussion. It is geared towards AMC leaders and co-leaders who lead winter hiking, backcountry skiing, or ice climbing trips.
If you are interested in attending, or have any questions, please contact Mike Bratina (firstname.lastname@example.org). This is being held in the conference room at City Square so space is limited.
