FREE Avalanche Awareness @ 509 XLab (Spokane)
November 8, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Please join us for a free avalanche awareness session hosted by IPAC and one of our generous sponsors.
The session will consist of a 1 hour Know Before You Go (KBYG) presentation followed by a question and answer/social hour.
Know Before You Go is a free avalanche awareness program. Not much science, no warnings to stay out of the mountains, and no formulas to memorize. In 1 hour, you will see the destructive power of avalanches, understand when and why they happen, and how you can have fun in the mountains and avoid avalanches. This is a great opportunity to dip your toes into the world of winter backcountry recreation or brush up your knowledge from years past. All are welcome!
