Please join us for the 4th annual 2012 Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop on Saturday, 11/3/12 at the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy. Once again, we will have a collection of the best avalanche minds in the intermountain region to discuss avalanche issues including lessons learned from accidents and the latest international research. We will have exhibitors showing off their latest goods and the day will end with a happy hour for a more informal chat and quality social time. The open public session begins at 1:00 pm.
Buy tickets online to save time and $$. Tickets will be available at the door for $30 if we have space.
If you are an avalanche professional (resort employee, Department of Transportation employee, Search and Rescue volunteer, Guide, etc) and would like to attend the early morning pro session, please contact us at email@example.com for more information.
