4th Annual Colorado Backcountry Avalanche Workshop

This is not an official Los Alamos Mountaineers event, but it is being posted as a general interest item for our club members.

Date and Time: Thursday, March 2, 5:30 - 9:00 PM MST

This event is available for online viewing for a nominal $5 fee.

Friends of CAIC and the CAIC are excited to bring you the 4th Annual Colorado Backcountry Avalanche Workshop (COBAW) presented by Colorado Mountain School and sponsored by RAB, Hestra, and Fat Tire.

COBAW is not an awareness clinic. It is aimed at more experienced backcountry users who want to dig deeper and continue their education.
