Backcountry Awareness Talk

2014-02-03 18:01:17.000 – Rebecca Scholand,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


One of my passions on the Summit is educating people. This Saturday, February 8th I get to take my experience as a Weather Observer from 6,288′ to the valley. From 6pm to 8pm at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway, myself and Snow Ranger Frank Carus will be giving a free presentation on Backcountry Awareness. Topics will cover utilizing both Organization’s forecast information as well as tips and tricks to safe travel and decision making in the backcountry. Please join the Mount Washington Observatory and the Mount Washington Avalanche Center for a fun and informative evening with swag giveaways too!
