Description

Digging a snow profile and standing in it for a photo is only a very small piece of the equation when making decisions in real terrain. This workshop provides a big picture approach and will teach some usefull tips and tricks to set you up for success for when you’re out there making decisions.

By introducing and comparing several standard snowpack tests (compression tests, extended column tests, rutcheblock tests, and propogation saw tests) we will help you develop a process to answer the "so what does that mean" question when digging a snow pits. We'll also cover ways to effectively communicate these more technical obsevations in an assessible way to the larger backcountry riding comunity over the Mountain Information Network.

If you have an AST1, AST2, or CAA Level 1 with 3+ years of backountry ski touring or split boarding experinece and typically take on more of a leadership role in your riding group then this is the workshop for you.

This workshop is only open to members of the Yukon Avalanche Assocation who have submitted at least 4 observations to the Mountain Information Network in the last year (we know who you are). If you're not already a member sign up here: http://www.yukonavalanche.ca/membership.

Spaces are limited so regiter early!!!
