Avalanche Awareness says
Join Allen Giernet, Founder and Director of So Cal Snow Avalanche Center (SCSAC) for the first step in avalanche education.

Avalanche Awareness will give you a comprehensive overview of avalanches, how they happen, how to travel in avalanche terrain, what conditions are cause for concern and what to do if you or your partner is caught in an avalanche.

Through exciting video footage, photos and engaging dialog, you will learn why you should be aware, and how to be prepared when you enter the unpredictable environment of the winter mountains. You will learn what types of equipment are standard for winter backcountry travel and how they operate.

There will be demonstrations and opportunity to try this equipment. Unfortunately, lives have been lost to avalanches in our local mountains and the world over. Join us and start the path of education that will help keep you and your friends safe while allowing you to enjoy our winter wilderness for a lifetime.
