Motorized Avalanche Awareness
Snowmobiling is an awesome way to enjoy our great state and blow off some steam, but you want to know your stuff when you’re up against the force of an avalanche. During this free motorized specific avalanche awareness night, expert mountain rider and avalanche educator Duncan Lee will deliver an introduction on how avalanches happen, what they look like, and how to avoid them. Through video footage, photos and engaging dialog, you will learn about why you should be aware, and how to be prepared when you travel in the backcountry. We’ll talk about gear, terrain, snowpack and more!
The avalanche awareness session is designed for both current and aspiring backcountry travelers. Join the Mountain Riding Lab, Gull Boats & RV, Missoula Snowgoers and Missoula Avalanche at the Big Sky Brewing Co. and learn some valuable tips on Avalanche safety.
