The 142nd and final avalanche advisory for the 2017/2018 season was published on April 22nd. Thank you to all who have supported the avalanche center through volunteer hours, field observations, and financial support.
UNR ~ Avalanche Awareness
Come join SAC and UNR for a night of Avalanche Awareness. The event is from 7-9pm. Zach Tolby, from NOAA, will speak about mountain weather. Brant Moles is slated to cover risk management from an athlete's perspective, and Erin Laine will host a "Know Before You Go" (KBYG) film and presentation. "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.
