This year I was honored to be invited to the Northwest Snow and Avalanche Workshop as a guest of the organizer, Michael Jackson. He saw my write-up from last year and and agreed that sharing the conference in writing could only spread its impact, so I returned this year caffeinated and with notebook in hand.
Avalanche conferences are a great way to get your head back in the game at the start of the season and to get a window into the thinking of some of the best in the game. This year was as absorbing and entertaining as last, and I’m happy to say that the quarterly publication of the American Avalanche Association, the Avalanche Review, is running my write-up in their February issue. It’s pretty cool to be just pages away from the likes of Drew Hardesty and Doug Chabot.
