The first day and a half of the conference is specifically designed for snow safety professionals including forecasters, instructors, guides, search and rescue and public information providers.
Saturday 1-6pm is all about public outreach!
We invite conference participants to provide a brief, hands-on activity that gets one point about snow safety across in a fun, innovate way. Invite your friends, tell your neighbors, this is an incredible opportunity to meet and share with your neighbors and learn from your colleagues. Thank you for representing Alaska as one of our finest snow-safety professionals.
Welcome - To everyone that loves to recreate in the snow including skiers, boarders, snowmachiners and mushers.
The goal of this conference is to bring together those interested in snow and avalanche safety to network, discuss challenges and goals and to expand their education.
We want to ensure that Alaskan residents and visitors have easy access to the best quality and most effective avalanche and snowmobile snow safety training and information possible.
We invite all organizations to prepare a short presentation on your organization as well as a poster to share photos, your history and information on how you forecast, mitigate, educate and provide public outreach on snow safety in Alaska.
Organizations that complete a poster will be eligible to win a beacon, shovel and probe thanks to BCA. Posters will be judged by conference attendees so come vote for your favorite.
If you consider yourself a snow safety professional or would like to learn more about becoming one, join us Friday from 8:30a - 6p and Saturday from 8:30a - 12p.
On Saturday from 1-6p the conference will open to the general public for workshops, lectures, interactive training activities and more. We invite the snow safety professionals to join us to staff stations, provide workshops, lectures and demonstrations.
