Avalanche Awareness This Weekend
Article Date: January-12-2011
We are almost half way though the month of January and the snow is continulng to fall. With more pow on the way, this just may be the perfect time to bring up the subject of avalanche awareness and mountain safety!
This weekend Mount Washington will host the North Face Avalanche Awareness Days. This informative on-snow event takes place Saturday, January 15th and Sunday, January 16th at the mountain’s brand new Backcountry Access Beacon Basin.
Come on up and help the Canadian Avalanche Association promote alpine safety. Look out for silent auctions, demo's, and prize giveaways! This is a great opportunity to brush up on your safety knowledge, plus proceeds from the silent auction go to the CAA and the Vancouver Island Avalanche Centre for their Vancouver Island Avalanche Bulletin. Help support these great public awareness endeavours!
