BRASS 101 Free Avalanche Safety Webinar

By Lauren Beckos
November, 3 2020
Brass 101 Avalanche Safety
Free Brass 101 Avalanche Safety Webinar now available - register and gain essential avalanche safety knowledge whether you ski inbounds or in the back country.

Race events have a team captain's meeting and inspections so we can become familiar with the venue and terrain before jumping into the course. If we happen to have a day where the race is canceled due to too much snow, we still need to learn about the terrain before venturing out. Whether skiing inbounds or in the back country, knowledge is power when it comes to avalanche and skier safety!

The Bryce and Ronnie Athlete Snow Safety Foundation (BRASS) was formed in the memory of Bryce Astle and Ronnie Berlack, two rising U.S. Ski Team stars killed in an avalanche in 2015. After losing her son, Masters racer Cindy Berlack (New England Masters, W10) has become an advocate for Avalanche Awareness helping to spread the word about avalanche safety and education. 

Sign up for BRASS 101 Avalanche Safety Webinar and take 90 minutes to learn about avalanche safety from certified avalanche safety instructors.
