Utah is one of the fastest-growing states in the country, in part thanks to its amazing skiing found at resorts and in the backcountry. With an increase of people moving to Utah naturally comes more skiers and snowboarders, and when there are more people riding it is absolutely crucial that they have the proper education on avalanche and backcountry safety, for themselves as well as others.
For anyone who is “a bit rusty with their rescue gear, looking to practice with their transceivers,” or just wants to learn more about the backcountry, this is the perfect event to attend. However, at the same time, the UAC is strongly emphasizing that this event does not act as a substitute for an avalanche course, rather it is a community gathering where individuals can expand their knowledge on backcountry safety and procedure.
