How to Travel Over Snow

Join longtime outdoors instructor Mike Zawaski, author of Snow Travel: Skills for Climbing, Hiking, and Moving Across Snow, for an inspiring talk and slideshow about how to avoid making common mistakes, how to use your ice ax for traversing, chopping steps, self-arresting, and much more, how to navigate a snowy patch if you don't have an ice ax, pre-trip planning and picking the right gear such as crampons and safety essentials, and finally, where to go in Colorado with your new-found snow travel skills.

The presentation will be held at the REI in Westminster on April 23rd, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. To register for the free event, please click here.
