    The 6th annual Northern Rockies Avalanche Safety Workshop returns to Whitefish, Montana again this year on November 5th. NRSAW is a one-day gathering of avalanche professionals and winter backcountry enthusiasts.

    Our members have been making the easy/scenic drive over for the workshop the past four years and it always ends up to be a worthwhile and informative event with top notch avy professionals speaking. (Here's the list of speakers) -- and as a bonus our members always manage to win some of the better raffle prizes. ;)

    Looks like it will be held at a new venue this year, located in "downtown":

    Northern Rockies Snow and Avalanche Workshop on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the O'Shaughnessy Cultural Arts Center in Whitefish, Montana from 9:00 am - 4:00pm

    Registration is $25 ($30 at the door): http://www.flatheadavalanche.org/class/northern-rockies-snow-and-avalanche-workshop-registration

    Registered. Based on my "order number" you all better stay home or else no one will any items in the raffle. I promise to share my winnings if none of you show up. If I see any of you there, all bets are off and I keep 100% of everything I win. Don't say I didn't offer.
  19. Have fun guys, and drink a beer for me! I've got 20 exhilarating hours of sitting in a continuing education class coming my way this weekend - woohoo!
  20. I'm registered, also on the train from Spokane. See you there Jared and co!
