Avalanche Awareness Clinic & Outing

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 14, 2017 - 7:00am to 6:00pm

Practice identifying avalanche terrain, assessing snow pack, and using beacons and other rescue equipment. This Thursday evening clinic is a required pre-trip for the Avalanche Awareness Outing. If you attend this clinic, you get free admission to the McConkey Movie Night! Sign up at the OP Office in the EMU - $5. If you attend the clinic, consider applying your newfound skills in the field during our Saturday follow-up outing at Willamette Pass. Spend the morning exploring avalanche terrain, conducting snow pit analysis, and practicing beacon rescue scenarios. In the afternoon, you'll have time to ski at the resort, but you must feel comfortable on BLUE (intermediate) runs. Sign up at the OP Office in the EMU - $10 plus the cost of a lift ticket. 

Cost: 
$5 for the clinic $10 (+ the cost of a lift ticket) for the optional outing
