As Ms. Lara informed you guys yesterday, Park City is set to open on Saturday! If you’re planning on exploring the backcountry around the area this year, as I’ve repeatedly said, make sure you know everything there is to know about avalanches! There’s more to know than you may think.

Park City is helping you get your avalanche education going by hosting the Avalanche Awareness Lectures. The lectures will benefit both you and the Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center, a great organization. They’ll be held at the Jim Santy auditorium at 1255 Park Avenue in Park City on Tuesday November 24th and Tuesday December 22nd from 6-9 PM. Admission is free, but if you’re really cool, you’l throw 10 bucks donation to the Friends of the Utah Avalanche Center. At each lecture, there will be two drawings with more than a thousand bucks in prizes from sponsors like Park City Mountain Resort, Black Diamond, Marmot and more!

Enjoy Park City this weekend!
