September 2020 Feature

Avalanche Alliance will be hosting avalanche awareness open house seminars around the U.S. starting Oct. 15, 2020, featuring safety equipment inspections and presentations from KLIM snowmobile athletes Matt Entz and Dan Adams. These avalanche awareness open houses will be opportunities to learn about proper training and help prepare riders for the upcoming winter season.

Dan Adams from Next Level Riding Clinics and Matt Entz from Mountain Skillz will visit dealerships and other locations throughout October and November. They will present about the dangers of avalanches, the importance of proper training and will discuss backcountry safety. The awareness open houses are not meant to replace true on-the-snow clinics and certifications, but they will identify key concepts and help riders understand the need for proper training.

Riders are encouraged to bring their avalanche airbag backpack, beacon, probe and shovel to their nearby open house for a preseason equipment inspection. 

This is one of the ways Avalanche Alliance is helping the snowmobile community reach a higher level of avalanche awareness and safety, using funds from last year’s KLIM 20th Anniversary Sled Giveaway to host these open houses. 

This year, AIARE, KLIM and Avalanche Alliance have partnered to give away another custom-built sled to help fund motorized safety instructor resources. To donate for a chance to win KLIM’s Ultimate Backcountry Sled visit https://avtraining.tapkat.org/klimbackcountrysled.
