This "Roundtable" forum features Blase Reardon with the CAIC and Brint Markle with Avatech.
Blase will present an update and summary of this season's snowpack and current stability status.
Brint will introduce Avatech's amazing NEW technology featuring a "Smart Probe" that gives instantaneous snowpit data combined with a user friendly software program that is designed for the backcountry community to communicate as never before.
The combination of the CAIC and Avatech brings backcountry awareness and safety to a whole new level.
It's FREE and INFORMATIVE! The evening begins with Apres-ski and formally begins around 5PM. The roundtable format is designed to be inclusive & interactive in a casual atmosphere.
