Salt Lake - Dec 10th, 2019
Women's Specific Know Before You Go - Dec. 10th 2019 - REI SLC 06:30 PM. Register for the talk at the following link - https://www.rei.com/events/94188/utah-avalanche-center-womens-know-before-you-go/259997 . Avalanches kill an average of 42 people each year in North America. Hundreds more are injured. Avalanches don't just happen to extreme athletes - they can happen to those skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, hiking, driving, hunting, bike riding, and more - anyone who can get onto or underneath steep snow-covered slopes. Many avalanche victims don't know they are in avalanche danger and are unprepared to deal with an avalanche. This doesn't have to happen - the danger signs are usually obvious to those who know what to look for. Just as those in Hawaii learn about the dangers of rip currents and shore breaks at an early age, those living, working, and recreating in snowy mountains need to learn about avalanches. What you learn can save lives. The program consists of a video showing the destructive power of avalanche and what you need to know to stay safe in avalanche terrain followed by a slide presentation from a local avalanche professional with more details about avalanche danger, how to navigate in avalanche terrain, what gear to carry and how to use it, how to find a report of current avalanche conditions in your area, and how to learn more about avalanches.
