Who Should Come? YOU
Are you thinking about heading out into the backcountry from the ski hill or backcountry riding for the first time? Or are you experienced and want to keep up with the latest in avalanche risk reduction? Show up at one of the CAA's Backcountry Avalanche Workshops and bring yourself up to speed through hands-on exercises with snow safety professionals.

The Mission:
The mission of the workshops is to provide you with an avalanche safety primer in a grass-roots style. We want to help you learn how to play it safe, through a progressive and unique forum for the sharing of ideas and developments. If you like to snowboard, ski or ride a snowmobile, this workshop will help you reduce your chance of getting in trouble with avalanches. Period.

What you come home with:
This year, the Backcountry Avalanche Workshops will include interactive exercises and instructional lectures taught by Canadian Avalanche Centre Avalanche Forecasters and Canadian Avalanche Association Level 1 and Level 2 instructors. You will also get an Avaluator, the brand new tool for making decisions in avalanche country.

Cost: $20
You can’t pre-purchase a ticket this year. Just show up at the door.
