17th Annual Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop
October 5, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 5:00 pm$28
The Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop is a one-day professional development seminar for people working in the avalanche field or in avalanche terrain. It provides a venue for avalanche workers to listen to presentations and discuss new ideas, techniques and technologies with their colleagues. This event is open to the public.
The 2018 Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop will feature a diverse set of speakers covering topics from the effects of climate change on our snowpack to the history of the Colorado Department of Transportation avalanche mitigation program. Speakers will present on operational forecast challenges and solutions. This will include a talk on the ever-present wind slab avalanche problem at Breckenridge Ski Resort and a talk from a CAIC Highway forecaster with experience in the Pacific Northwest on the challenges of avalanche mitigation during rain on snow events. This year we will also have a group discussion and hear from four seasoned avalanche professionals on how a specific event shaped their avalanche career.
The full workshop schedule will be available soon.
$25 until 9/28/2018
$40 starting 9/29/2018
