Free education is always great, especially from the Friends of the Avalanche Center. This Tuesday, January 5th, join us online for a free 1 hour talk about avalanche safety.

The timing is perfect for this free talk, as the snow has been late to show up and conditions in the back country are changing day to day. It's never a bad idea to brush up on the basics of avalanche safety, and gain insight to conditions in our area.
