Guide Matt Wade will be giving a free Avalanche Awareness Clinic at the REI in Grand Junction next Thursday evening (11/3). Participants will learn about avalanche terrain recognition in the backcountry, avalanche types and characteristics, and they will learn how to identify clues to avalanche danger. There will also be an introduction to avalanche rescue using a beacon, shovel, and probe. Clicking on the image below will direct you to the REI page where you can sign up.
