Colorado Snow Avalanche Workshop
The 13th annual Colorado Snow Avalanche Workshop (CSAW) will take place on Friday, October 17. We are moving to a new, spacious venue at the Breckenridge Riverwalk Center. We are inviting speakers from around Colorado and North America. This is a one-day professional development seminar for people working in avalanche safety to learn and discuss new ideas, techniques and technologies with their colleagues. The meeting is intended for ski patrollers, avalanche forecasters, road maintenance personnel, ski guides, avalanche education instructors, undergraduate and graduate students, and applied researchers, but the meeting is open to anyone.
Registration begins September 1, and will be $25 in advance and $40 at the door. Special lodging rates in and around Breckenridge will be available.
We will update the CSAW web page with the speaker list, registration links, and lodging rates by September 1. Check the page for the latest details: http://avalanche.state.co.us/about-us/events/13th-annual-colorado-snow-avalanche-workshop/
