Laying Tracks Series: Mountain Weather Forecasts
February 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm UTC-8
Laying Tracks is our latest educational series for new backcountry travelers and those looking to refresh or deepen their knowledge. To get the most out of the series we strongly recommend you sign up for all four workshops.
Mountain Weather Forecasts
Temperatures are falling, and the easterly flows are working their magic; how will weather trends impact your plan? Weather is a huge factor that should fold into your winter trip planning, as it plays a large part in snowpack development. Join NWAC’s avalanche meteorologists and forecasters to discuss how you can best use our purpose-built mountain weather forecasts to prep for your next adventure and learn how to apply forecasting language to your terrain selection. Participants should have a rudimentary understanding of avalanches as founded in an awareness course. We recommend that participants have taken an awareness course and have a foundation in summer travel. This workshop series will prepare you for a Level 1 avalanche course, so that you may be a more effective student and get more out of your Level 1 experience.
- Hone your existing tool sets for traveling in the backcountry in winter
