This is a fundraiser for the Utah Avalanche Center. All proceeds from the event go towards avalanche outreach and education geared specifically for snowmobilers.
Essential Avy and Riding Skills Workshop
Want to learn from the pros about avalanches and how to get out, get after it, and come home alive? We are holding a hands-on avalanche and advanced riding skills clinic for snowmobilers. A Thursday evening chat session is followed by field instruction on Thousand Peaks Ranch (note the new location!) in the western Uinta Mountains. Instructors include Utah Avalanche Center forecasters along with Dan Gardiner, Phatty and the Boondockers crew. This is limited to 18 people, so we will have 6 riders per instructor

Meet at Thousand Peaks Ranch.

In addition, Dan and Phatty will show you how to ride like a pro.
Whether you want to drop the big cliffs or get the confidence to take your friends and family out safely, this is your chance to learn from the best.
