Utah Folks - Upcoming Avalanche Talks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I just thought you might want to put one or more of these talks on your schedule. Bruce Tremper is God.

By the way, the CSAC (email address included in message below) does an essential job of monitoring snow conditions and issuing avalanche reports and warnings. They do it with a chronic lack of funding. You can subscribe to their email service and receive daily avalanche reports for the Wasatch (as well as other states if you so choose). They only ask for a small donation to put you on their email list.

Hello this is Bruce Tremper with the Forest Service Utah Avalanche
Center.

There are a number of upcoming events that might interest you:

The 15^th annual backcountry gear swap will be at REI Saturday,
November 9^th. You can bring in any gear you want to sell on Thursday
or Friday evenings. Then the swap opens at 9:00 am on Saturday.
Again, proceeds benefit avalanche forecasting and avalanche education
in Utah.

Finally, a number of great avalanche classes will be offered by various
entities throughout the season and many of them are free. For instance,
our staff will give several free avalanche awareness talks at both REI and
Black Diamond. The REI classes are scheduled for Tuesday, November 12^th,
Tuesday, December 3^rd, and I will be giving a talk titled The Science of
Avalanches on Tuesday, December 10th. All these talks are free.

Well, have a great and safe fall, and we will begin our regular
advisories somewhere around November 1^st, hopefully sooner if the
weather cooperates.

Thanks Bob.

DOne & hopefully [img]graemlins/angel.gif[/img] ZI can make one of the earlier ones as I am out of town on the 13-16 (Aspen Highlands opening) when the clinic is being offered @ REI. I "re-up" at least once a year.

Maybe we can get a group together for some beacon searches soon?!?!?

for realism we could bury BobMc with a beacon & a tube in his mouth, find him & dig em up!



What say ye Bob?!

Hee, hee.

I'm all for that. It might be fun to get a group together to go out and do searches. I'm committed for the next two weekends, but after that I'd be all over it.

Just as an aside, I have noticed that my transceiver skills improve exponentially when we attach the beeper to a six-pack and bury the beer in the snow. That method isn't exactly sanctioned by the AAI, but it works for me.

Is this tube attached to a can of beer?
