Over the last 10 winters in the United States an average of 25 people died in avalanches every year. Colorado has the highest number of avalanche fatalities, by far. The best way to prevent avalanche accidents, other than avoiding avalanche-prone areas altogether, is to obtain solid education in avalanche awareness and safety. If you would like to learn more about avalanche education, don't miss the free presentation by the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) on December 1st!

CAIC is offering a 90 minute presentation on avalanche awareness and safety in the winter backcountry. The program is designed to help backcountry travelers understand the risks associated with avalanches and what is necessary to manage those risks. They will help explain avalanche danger, what defines avalanche terrain, and some basic steps for reducing avalanche risk in Colorado's mountains.

When: 12/1/10 at 7:00 PM
Where: Mountain Chalet
226 N. Tejon St.
