Canyons Sports Free Avalanche Awareness Classes and BREW*


By Yeti \ December 2 2009 \ 1 Comment

A critical need exists for basic avalanche education for all ski and snowboarders in Utah.

Just as students in Hawaii learn about the dangers of rip tides and shore breaks at an early age, snow sports enthusiasts in Utah need to learn about snow safety and avalanches.  The rising number of avalanche victims have demonstrated an obvious need for basic avalanche education.

“Know Before You Go” is a free 50-minute presentation from the Utah Avalanche Center.
