Know Before You Go by COAC

Tuesday, February 2nd @ 6:00 pm

| Free

The “Know Before You Go” presented by Hydro Flask is a basic avalanche awareness presentation provided at no charge by our friends at Central Oregon Avalanche Center.

This is a FREE, basic avalanche awareness presentation aimed at highlighting introductory concepts and tools for traveling in avalanche terrain.

Learn about the destructive power of avalanches, safety equipment, how people get in trouble, and the basics of how to avoid them. In line with COAC’s mission of increasing avalanche awareness and safety in Central Oregon, this presentation will provide a good foundation for learning about backcountry travel or is an excellent refresher for more experienced backcountry users.

Please note that this presentation is not a replacement for taking an avalanche class taught by certified avalanche professionals.

The KBYG presentations are offered on-line via Zoom and details can be found at coavalanche.org

Note: Pre-Covid, our friends at Immersion Brewing have provided their space as hosts for the traditional, in-person version of the KBYG events. Should you attend one of these on-line editions of the KBYG we encourage you to continue to support them by ordering take-out from Immersion Brewing that you can bring home to enjoy while attending this free event!
