Seasonal review and current conditions presentation from UAC forecaster Brett Kobernik!

"I will discuss the season weather and snow history and the formation of various weak layers.  I'll be using some more complex terminology and technical data as well as just plain everyday common sense chit chat.  I will also review a close call I had on Weds, Feb 3 where I was caught and carried in an avalanche.  I think lots of folks will relate to some of the factors leading to the decision to get onto that slope."

Learn avalanche skills in a 1 evening/1 day class with the Utah Avalanche Center. Riding in the backcountry is safer and more fun when you understand avalanches and have solid riding skills. Nobody wants to be that partner that can't make smart decisions or be counted on. Spend an evening learning the basics and a day on the snow to learn how to get out in the backcountry, have fun, and come home ready to do it again.
