Wednesday, January 9th: Avalanche Safety- The Human Factors
Alpenglow Sports, Tahoe City / 6:30-8:30pm
Megan Michelson will share her first hand experiences from last year’s Steven’s Pass avalanche. Megan wrote about this tragedy in Outside Magazine. Read the article, Tunnel Vision on her website by going to: meganmichelson.com
After sharing her experiences on Steven’s Pass, Megan will lead a discussion about the human factors of avalanche safety, an ever-growing field of study. What is human nature when travelling in groups? How does group mentality contribute to, or hinder safety? Does gender play a role? We’ll discuss some rules of thumb to follow when travelling with groups for winter backcountry.
Enjoy wine, snacks, and raffle prizes, as well as 20% off everything in the shop (excluding skis, boots, bindings, beacons, skins and poles).
