Companion Rescue Workshop

The Beacon Bowl, an avalanche awareness event,  will be held Saturday February 9.  The event offers many things including beacon clinics, beacon competitions, raffles, a party and more.  All proceeds are donated to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC).

This year in conjunction with the Beacon Bowl, we will be hosting a "Companion Rescue Workshop" Friday, February 8.  Staff from the CAIC and several ski patrols will provide classroom and hands-on instruction for solo and group avalanche rescue.  This can be a great way to improve your personal skills.  It also makes a great gift for your backcountry partner.  (You really want him/her to be good at this).  And of course we will finish the day with a 5PM Pasta and beer dinner.

You can sign up for the Companion Rescue Workshop, spaghetti dinner, Beacon Bowl, and lift tickets on the special events page of our website,

Yes! The Beacon Bowl is awesome! What better way to hone your beacon skills than through competition?
