COAC Know Before You Go – VIRTUAL
January 6 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
ANNOUNCEMENT: This KBYG was originally scheduled for January 4th but has been postponed until Thursday, January 6th. Our presenter is snowed at the yurt where he was teaching an avalanche course! Safety first and we’ll let him carry on with his snow shoveling and see him and all of you this Thursday instead! We apologize for any inconvenience.
Know Before You Go is a FREE basic avalanche awareness presentation aimed at highlighting introductory concepts and tools for traveling in avalanche terrain.
Learn about the destructive power of avalanches, safety equipment, how people get in trouble, and the basics of how to avoid them. In line with COAC’s mission of increasing avalanche awareness and safety in Central Oregon, this presentation will provide a good foundation for learning about backcountry travel or is an excellent refresher for more experienced backcountry users.
This event was originally scheduled to take place at 10 Barrel East Side. Due to COVID concerns we are switching to a virtual platform. Hopefully we will be back in person at 10 Barrel at the February 1st KBYG!
