Please join my friends from the American Avalanche Institute and help support Lani and Wray Landon with their efforts to provide this important event for winter fun seekers in our area. This is a great way to dust off the decision-making cobwebs and get your mind thinking about avalanche avoidance. Skiers, snowboarders, snowmobilers, ice climbers, snowshoers, ski patrollers, and anyone wanting to play in the hills this winter will all find valuable information at this event. Hope to see many of you there!
