Join us for an evening of presentations, discussion, and fun. Let's get started on winter! Doors open at 5pm. Talks start at 6pm.
Many students chose MSU because of the combination of access to a high quality education and outstanding winter recreation. Winter is a time to get out and explore our local mountains, ski some powder, and come home safely.
This year's MSU snow and avalanche workshop is focused on the sometimes difficult calculations we make in the backcountry while on skis, snowboards, or snowmobiles. It doesn't matter how experienced we are, at some point most of us will be faced with the go/no go decision. That may have consequences.
Our speakers this year have lived these decisions and will present cases from the Canadian Rockies and from our own back yard. Come spend some time with local guides, avalanche experts from the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center, industry leaders, and check out some of the latest avalanche technology.
