A-Basin helps you tackle the backcountry safely at the eighth annual Beacon Bowl and Avalanche Awareness Day on Saturday, Feb. 6. The day will include an avalanche transceiver competition, various avalanche-related demonstrations and clinics, a raffle, silent auction and après ski party.
After dozens of seasons on the slopes, taking the same runs year after year, you’ve finally decided it’s time to try something new: the backcountry. Chances are you’re thinking about new territory, new challenges, fresh tracks.... What you probably aren’t thinking about is avalanches. The people at Arapahoe Basin and the Colorado Avalanche Information Center are hoping to change that.
