Taylorview Middle School auditorium
This course is free and open to the public.
The Idaho Falls Ski Club, The American Avalanche Institute, and Wray and Lani Landon will be presenting the 11th annual Avalanche Awareness Night. The course covers material that is important to anyone considering venturing into the winter backcountry. It also provides excellent refresher material for experienced backcountry users. Content includes:
- The fundamentals of snowpack, weather, and terrain
- Avalanche forecast bulletins
- Backcountry decision-making basics
- Current season snowpack overview
This year we have invited Lynne Wolfe as our guest presenter. Lynne has served as the editor of The Avalanche Review (a journal focused on avalanche professionals) for 16 years. She is an Exum guide, and teaches
avalanche safety throughout the West. Lynne most enjoys helping avalanche students translate snow theory into making better decisions in the backcountry.
Doors will open at 6:30pm. We suggest that you arrive by 6:45pm since there will be several booths to visit in the lobby as well as a Banff film trailer showing in the auditorium. Raffle tickets and Kate’s Bars
will only be given out until 7:00pm when the event begins.
A wonderful assortment of door prizes will be given away following the presentation. If you have any questions, please call Wray at 208-521-2783 and Lani at 208-757-9287.
