Alta Community Enrichment, SheJumps, and the Utah Avalanche Center are hosting a free women's beacon clinic. Join us at Alta Ski Area to learn how to properly use your avalanche rescue gear. We will go over efficient beacon search, proper probing techniques, and strategic shoveling practices. Whether you are just getting started or are a backcountry veteran this is a great way to help refresh your skills!
We will meet inside the Albion Grill at 9:00 AM for roughly 30 minutes, then head outside. You do not need skis, snowboards or snowshoes for this clinic. The clinic can be done in boots - such as Sorrels, ski boots or snowboard boots.
We will have a limited amount of avalanche rescue gear available for women to borrow. Please bring your own Avalanche Transceiver (Beacon), Shovel, and Probe.
The clinic will end at 12:00 PM
