Come one, come all! Gociety is hosting a *FREE* Avalanche 101 class & shindig at the groovy Battery 621 building on Thursday, Nov 20th at 6:30pm in Denver.
Unlike most Avy 101 classes, our goal is to make this a both an educational event and a social gathering of awesome skiers, boarders and backcountry travellers from across Colorado. Veteran Apex Ex guides are leading the class, and the After Party + beer will be sponsored by Upslope Brewing Company. The night will be a great way to meet some awesome Gociety members, gain a bit of wisdom, and put back some of Colorado’s finest brews.
The event will support and benefit AIARE - these are the folks that work globally to educate travelers on safe backcountry travel practices.
Schedule & Details:
Doors @ 6:30 p.m.
Avy presentation: 7-8 p.m.
Expo, shindig, music, beer, giveaways, indoor beacon search: 8-10 p.m.
