Freeride Avalanche Summit Dec. 18th - 17th

by Utah Author December 11 2009 0 Comments


If you're skiing in the backcountry you can never know too much about avalanches. And one of the best ways to learn about Avalanches is from people who have been dealing with them for decades. Experience is everything in the backcountry. On December 17-18 Snowbird will be offering the Freeride Avalanche Summit a two day clinic targeting advanced and expert skiers and riders who want practical and professional instruction on avalanche awareness, safety and rescue.

Participants include:

  • Members of the UAC and Colorado Avalanche Information Center

  • Snowbird Ski Patrol and Snow Safety

  • Jim Conway, lead guide for Teton Gravity Research

  • Jeremy Nobis, professional skier

  • Gordy Peifer, professional skier

  • Jenn Berg, professional skier

  • Brant Moles, professional skier

  • Wasatch Powderbird Guides

  • “With the increase in backcountry and sidecountry traffic, it’s more important than ever to offer tangible and affordable avalanche instruction to upper level skiers and riders,” said UAC Forecaster and Freeride Avalanche Summit founder Craig Gordon. “This Summit brings together an awesome group of leading forecasters along with some of the best winter athletes in Utah.”

    The Yeti will be there. I hope to see you there as well.
