Avalanche Awareness Day

Saturday, February 23, 2019

To prevent avalanche accidents and help people make good decisions in avalanche terrain, Avalanche Canada and avalanche professionals in over 30 Canadian communities share their expertise to help people keep safe in the mountains during Avalanche Awareness.

Here in Fernie they have a full day of interactive and educational activities in the plaza and on mountain!  The day culminates with a fundraising auction up in the Griz Bar with proceeds going towards Avalanche Canada to support their public education programs.

There will be a number of activities going on during the day including:

  • Avalanche education
  • Transceiver demo
  • CARDA Dog demo
  • Snow pit demo

Full schedule coming soon.
