Snow and Avalanche Workshops 2012

This Autumn, Mammut has been busy attending ISSW as well as many of the regional snow and avalanche workshops which are becoming very popular in the western United States.

On October 13th, Mammut joined the community of Whitefish Montana to celebrate the second annual Northern Rockies Snow and Avalanche Workshop. Over 250 people attended. Some of the notable speakers included Karl Birkeland and Dale Atkins. Elyse Saugstad, who credits an airbag with her survival in an avalanche at Stevens Pass last year, also spoke.

On October 19, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center held the Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop (CSAW.) CSAW is always a very successful event and is an excellent opportunity to visit with the professional avalanche community before winter begins in earnest.

On November 2, Mammut will be at the Utah Snow and Avalanche Workshop. If you are able to attend, it is an opportunity to support your local avalanche and snow community. Come by the Mammut booth where you can update you Pulse firmware to 3.2 if you have not already or see this years Mammut Removable Airbag Systems (RAS.)
