Avalanche Awareness Days Jan 19 & 20 2013
The Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) presents Avalanche Awareness Days—a celebration of Canada’s avalanche safety expertise and an invitation to enjoy the winter backcountry with education and training.
“Avalanche Awareness Days is a terrific opportunity to celebrate the public avalanche safety net we enjoy here in Canada,” says CAC Executive Director Ian Tomm. “This year, over 50 communities across Canada are participating, holding a wide variety of events designed to build awareness of avalanche safety and education.”
At Hemlock Resort and Manning Park Resort, the Avalanche Awareness Days events will run from 10am to 2pm on Saturday Jan 19 and Sunday Jan 20.
We will be hosting an awareness booth with avalanche related information and safety equipment demonstrations. Throughout the day there will be opportunities to learn how to conduct Transceiver searches as well as Airbag and Rescue Demos and information on where you can sign up for an Avalanche Safety Training Course. Local avalanche experts will be on hand to answer any questions or to provide statements.
