Sharpen Your Avalanche Skills in Utah

Sandy, UT – Avalanche training is like first aid training – you only get good at it by practicing and continuing your education.

Join the Utah Avalanche Center and other avalanche pros from around North America for the 9th annual Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop (USAW) on Saturday, Nov 5 at the South Towne Expo Center in Sandy. USAW provides a great opportunity to listen to experts present on and discuss common decision-making errors in complex situations, backcountry-specific emergency response considerations, the latest snow science, and lessons learned from recent accidents.
