Last season’s Backcountry Avalanche Workshops were a huge success. We had an excellent speaker line-up on the theme of “terrain” and the feedback from these well-attended workshops was overwhelmingly positive. Many of the venues were standing room only. Below are some examples of the feedback we collected from exit surveys:

• “A day well spent. I felt it was valuable as a refresher and I learned excellent new tips and skills”- Vancouver participant

• “Fascinating perspectives from some of the most experienced professionals in the avy business” –Calgary participant

• “Awesome. Makes you think before you go out.” – Prince George participant

• “Very informative; now I want to learn more.” – Grande Prairie participant
