Itinerary:
Cam Campbell – Senior Forecaster & Special Projects Will make this special presentation of interest to all winter backcountry enthusiasts. The Canadian Avalanche Centre produces public avalanche bulletins and reports for fifteen regions throughout western Canada. This presentation will give an overview of how the bulletins are produced and discuss some of the limitations. It will also cover a new online decision support tool developed by the CAC that assists with interpreting regional danger ratings and choosing trips that are appropriate for the conditions. The CAC is the central hub for public avalanche awareness and education. Whether you're new to the backcountry or have many days of experience under your belt, you owe it to yourself, your family and your friends to know as much as you can about avalanche risk management.
