Description


The Utah Avalanche Center is presenting a FREE Avalanche 101 course at Cotopaxi’s Flagship store.
This class will touch on the latest information pertaining to backcountry, avalanches, and leave you with tips + tricks to take with you out in the mountains.

Think of it as a "Know Before You Go" education course topped with a fresh layer of powder… We want to walk away feeling stoked, informed and stocked with some giveaways before the snow falls.

Class will be led by UAC’s very own Jake Ward. Drop in for some drinks, snacks, + gear.
Space is LIMITED! Please register to save your spot.

Class will include:

  • An engaging video showing the destructive power of avalanches and what you need to know to stay safe in avalanche terrain
  • A local avalanche professional telling their avalanche stories
  • A slide presentation with more details about how to spot avalanche danger, how to navigate in avalanche terrain, what gear to carry and how to use it, how to find a report of current avalanche conditions in your area, and how to learn more about avalanches
  • Discussion with question and answers

*Please note that this is a 2 hour educational course, not a certification workshop.
