2016 Snow & Avalanche Workshops

Mark your calendars and get educated at one of the U.S. regional snow and avalanche workshops. These pre-season gatherings of snow travelers are a great way to share knowledge, learn, laugh, and network.  Meetings are intended for ski patrollers, avalanche forecasters, road maintenance personnel, ski guides, avalanche education instructors, snowmobile professionals, undergraduate and graduate students, and applied researchers, and also open to anyone in the community.
