The American Avalanche Institute, the Idaho Falls Ski Club, and Wray and Lani Landon will be presenting
the 13th annual Avalanche Awareness Night. The presentation covers material that is important to
anyone considering venturing into the winter backcountry. It also provides excellent refresher material
for experienced backcountry users. Content includes:

 The fundamentals of snowpack, weather, and terrain
 Avalanche forecast bulletins
 Backcountry decision-making basics
 Current season snowpack overview

This year we have invited Lisa Van Sciver as our guest presenter. Lisa began skiing at a young age in the
80’s and began climbing in 1996. After completing a degree at Colorado College, she moved to the
Tetons where she still lives today. After college she pursued expeditions in Alaska and the first-all female
ski descent of the Grand Teton. In 2009 Lisa began guiding for Jackson Hole Mountain Guides and Alaska
Mountaineering School. Lisa is an AMGA Rock Guide and works in venues across the west during the
spring, summer, and autumn. Lisa works as an avalanche forecaster for the Bridger-Teton Avalanche
Center and Snow Ranger for the Grand Teton National Park during the winter.
Doors will open at 6:30 pm. We suggest that you arrive by 6:45 pm since there will be several booths to
visit in the lobby. Raffle tickets and Kate’s bars will only be given out until 7:00 pm when the event
begins. A wonderful assortment of door prizes will be given away following the presentations. This
includes backcountry gear provided by Idaho Mountain Trading, Summit Eyecare, and Summit
Orthopaedics.
If you have any questions, please call Wray (208)521-2783 or Lani at (208)757-9287.
