Avalanche Awareness-Know Before You Go

Event Date: 
01/18/2017

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, 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. Join us for a two hour informative and interactive class on avalanche awareness. Suggested donation of $10 to Friends of the Payette Avalanche Center is appreciated.
