Know Before You Go Avalanche Awareness Seminars

Posted on in categories Event , Skiing & Snowboarding

Did you know we have an certified Avalanche Center here in Central Oregon. What was previously Central Oregon Avalanche Association (COAA), is now the Central Oregon Avalanche Center (COAC).  If you travel in the backcountry during winter, use their website as a resource and consider supporting this resource for our community. They host Know Before You Go events all winter long and the first is November 19th. See more event INFO HERE.

Know Before You Go is a FREE basic avalanche awareness presentation aimed at highlighting introductory concepts and tools for traveling in avalanche terrain.

Learn about the destructive power of avalanches, safety equipment, how people get in trouble, and the basics of how to avoid them. In line with COAC’s mission of increasing avalanche awareness and safety in Central Oregon, this presentation will provide a good foundation for learning about backcountry travel or is an excellent refresher for more experienced backcountry users.

We offer 1 session every month, November-March. Check out our web page for more details and dates!
