Know Before You Go is a free avalanche awareness program. Not much science, no warnings to stay out of the mountains, no formulas to memorize. In 1 hour, you will see the destructive power of avalanches, understand when and why they happen, and how you can have fun in the mountains and avoid avalanches. Know Before You Go into the backcountry this winter. Learn how to recognize the clues to avalanche danger along with basics on safe travel in the backcountry. A short film with amazing footage from Sherpa Cinemas, Red Bull Media House, Brain Farm, and the Utah Avalanche Center will be shown followed by a short presentation discussing the salient points of the film.  This is a fun way to connect with the outdoor community, inspire you to get outside in the winter, while providing valuable information to keep you safe in and near avalanche terrain.

Avalanche Awareness presentations will be held in a virtual environment live on Zoom this season.

Avalanche transcievers, or beacons, are the best tools we have to find someone buried in an avalanche. Join us and learn how to use one and effectively carry out a companion rescue. It is also a great chance to brush up on your skills. Demos of several different types (BCA, Ortovox, Pieps, Mammut/Barryvox) will be available. Dress to be outside on the snow. These clinics take place at the Bunny Flat trailhead. Bring your backcountry ski or snowboard gear and go for a tour after the class! Don't want to listen to us yak away? You can still come and run through the beacon courses a few times to hone your rescue skills. Remember, YOU are the rescue party! Get dialed.
