To return safely from each day in the mountains, you need a risk management process that isn’t burdensome and difficult to follow. This clinic will introduce you to the Sierra Avalanche Center’s “Daily Flow.” When applied well, the “Daily Flow” is an elegant way to structure your day. It allows for fun in the snow while managing avalanche risk and providing opportunities for lifelong learning.

Join Sierra Avalanche Forecaster Andy Anderson for an educational morning that will allow you to better understand and implement the comprehensive daily avalanche forecast. Please note that this is a classroom-only workshop.

*PLEASE NOTE! In the spirit of inclusivity we are limiting participants to four tours. This does not include workshops, Backcountry Basics, etc. Registration for most events requires a deposit, which varies from $25-$100, that is refunded upon participation. Cancellations are not allowed after February 1st and all calendar adjustments prior to February 1st are subject to a $10 adjustment fee. Any excess garnered from the cancellation policy will be donated to Protect Our Winters and the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance.

**Please also note that you will be sent a complete equipment list for each individual event by the middle of January. Additionally, if you have registered for any backcountry tour you will be contacted 72 hours prior to the tour with the exact location. This is irrelevant if your chosen tour stipulates a location, but for others we want to assess the snow and avalanche conditions for others closer to the event. The goal is to show you the best time possible which requires a decision closer to each tour.
