Winter Climbing Fourteeners: Lessons Learned from the Front Lines of Mountain Rescue!

November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Winter Climbing Fourteeners Lessons Learned from the Front Lines of Mountain Rescue

Winter Climbing Fourteeners: Lessons learned from the front lines of mountain rescue!

Alpine member Dale Atkins is a 40-plus year veteran of mountain rescue, ski patrolling and avalanche science. He is an internationally recognized avalanche expert, a past president of the American Avalanche Association, past vice president in the International Commission for Alpine Rescue (ICAR) and a former forecaster for the Colorado Avalanche Information Center.

Dale will talk about the common actions that lead to accidents and people getting into trouble on winter climbs. Data have shown people are people – and many make the same errors that become lessons for the rest of us. His presentations are always astonishingly informative and detailed.

Part of Alpine’s inaugural Backcountry Safety Series 2017.
