Please join us for a KBYG presentation hosted by KUHL from 5:00 - 8:00 PM.
Location: KUHL Store, 333 Main St Unit F, Park City, UT 84060.
Every year, more and more people are venturing into the backcountry to search for fresh powder, enjoy a long snowmobile tour, go for a beautiful hike with their family, or simply get away from the fast pace of the city. However, before anyone makes their first step in the backcountry, they need to learn about avalanches. Avalanches kill an average of 27 people every season in the United States alone and hundreds more are injured. Getting educated about avalanches is the best way to keep you and your loved ones safe in the mountains. Join us at the KUHL store in Park City for a KBYG avalanche awareness presentation. In less than one hour you’ll learn how to find an avalanche forecast and how it helps keep you safe, what the essential avalanche safety gear is and why it’s important, how to sign up for an avalanche class and what you’ll learn, what avalanche terrain is, and how to stay aware when you’re in the mountains. Whether you’re new to the backcountry or a seasoned mountain explorer, the KBYG program is designed to be your first step in avalanche education in addition to serving as a refresher of avalanche safety fundamentals.
Additionally, KUHL will be giving away a Spyfire™ Down Jacket (Raven color) in any size to a lucky attendee! Please note, this event is for 21+ as we will have complimentary beverages for you to enjoy while watching the presentation. Get there early to reserve your seat as there is seating and standing space. All proceeds benefit the Utah Avalanche Center's forecasting and education efforts. We hope to see you there!
