Avalanche Terrain: Tonight at REI, learn how to not die in an avalanche
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) is calling the avalanche danger on the front range "moderate" at the moment, but will upgrade that to "considerable" with another 4-6 inches of snowfall. Perfect timing: This week REI continues its series of free avalanche awareness workshops with CAIC instructors at its Denver flagship store with Avalanche Terrain: Beyond the Basics on Tuesday, December 7 at 7pm, and Avalanche Transceiver Basics on Wednesday.
For more advanced avalanche education, check out the full CAIC class calendar. Start with the freebie classes, and if the helpful staff at REI talks you into buying a transceiver, snow probes, and avalanche shovel while you're at it, rest assured that it's probably not a bad idea.
