AWSC CONVENTION AND WORKSHOP

Friday, October 30, 2015 to Sunday, November 1, 2015

TBA has been invited back to the AWSC Workshop. 

In 2013 we went out and had an adult and youth lecture about avalanche safety for those traveling to the west during the winter. The program was a huge success, packed house for both discussions. This year we have been asked back again. The program is Equipment Demodesigned to get some basic knowledge to a growing user group and hopefully spark interest in taking an intro course on your next trip out West. 

The focus will be given to the latest gear and the best way to practically deploy this gear. We will cover the importance and operation of each piece. The theory of companion rescue and some great time saving techniques. This will lead us into a discussion of prevention by terrain selection. A common misconception of avalanche terrain is that you are going to have to have a lame ride or not go out at all if the avy danger is elevated. This is typically not the case, we find that with education most riders can "unlock" more terrain through education.

TBA will also have a table in the main hallway to be available for any questions or hands on time with any gear/topics that you want more information about. If you see Brian at anytime during the event feel free to pick his brain.

Matt Entz explains how the Snowpulse bag protects

Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo

Saturday, October 10, 2015 to Sunday, October 11, 2015

Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo

If you have a passion for mountain snowmobiling, there’s no better place to get your fix in the fall than the Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo in Denver, Colorado, brought to you by Snow Goer magazine in cooperation with the Colorado Snowmobile Association. To get in the mood, check out the commercial at right from last year's show, and check back later this year for updates on this year's show.

Snowmobile Expo Workshops Once again Tyler's Backcountry Awareness has been invited to share in the workshops for the 30th annual Rocky Mountain Snowmobile Expo.  This year we will be discussing the Know Before You Go campaign and how it will bring beacon check points to Colorado trail heads.  With the KBYG campaign covering trail heads and the Colorado Snowmobile Association putting together a comprehensive packet to distribute to other groups in the West. 

Our workshop will move into Checking the Avalanche Bulletin, a little step of preparation before you leave town. Lastly applying the basics to help you choose your riding crew for the day. Some days it's just better to pick your partner rather than risk an accident.

As always bring your avy bag and get your annual deploy out of the way, we will be filling bottles or exchanging them as long as we can. Make sure you come to the booth and get signed up for classes, the formal schedule will be released on Friday before the show.

As with all shows, support us by wearing your TBA gear and we will fish something great out of the Scheag box for you!
