- Pre-Trip Planning
The 2014-15 Backcountry Avalanche Workshop (BAW) road tour will be targetting southern BC and Alberta this fall.
Sponsored by Labatts Brewery, the BAW is a free, 2-hour, evening presentation delivered by an Avalanche Canada forecaster on avalanche awareness open to any backcountry recreationist. This is a great pre-season tune-up where you can refresh your skills or learn new ones. Please check back as the schedule (venue, dates and times) will be updated through the season.

Avalanche Canada wishes to thank our presenting sponsor, Columbia Brewery, for their continuing support of the BAWs that we've taken to numerous communities. We also wish to thank the local groups who sponsor venues and the on-the-ground organizers from the communities who are integral to the success of the individual workshops.
