The BC Parks Avalanche Awareness Days will be taking place from 11am – 2pm on January 20th and 21st, 2017 at the Red Heather Shelter in Garibaldi Park (www. env.gov.bc.ca.)
This free event will include single and multiple burial transceiver tests, snow profile demos, and gear use demos. Allow 1-2 hours to get from the parking lot to Red Heather and expect winter travelling conditions. Vehicle chains are mandatory for the upper section of the Garibaldi Park Road. All ages and abilities are welcome.
It’s a great opportunity to “get your feet wet” with snow safety. If you are considering backcountry travel, this day is for you.
