Alpenglow Sports Avy Nights

By ccrossen | October 23, 2018

On November 16th, 28th, and December 11th, Alpenglow Sports will host three Community Avalanche Beacon Seminars and Practice Sessions. Join the North Lake Tahoe shop for a night of avalanche safety training in partnership with outdoor industry-leading brands, Mammut (on the 16th and 11th) and Black Diamond (on the 28th). Fun-filled, free and educational, these evenings will be held behind the shop in the Tahoe City Winter Sports Park.

Each event will consist of an outdoor component that will cover both basic and multiple burial scenarios, as well as over-arching safety themes. During this hands-on practice, Alpenglow Sports will have a small fleet of beacons on hand for practice, and knowledgeable experts will be available to teach proper avalanche beacon usage. If you own your own beacon, we encourage you to bring it for practice. Please bring a headlamp, warm clothing and dress for winter conditions.

This event will help attendees better understand avalanche beacon function and the recent technological advancements of these vital backcountry tools. The evening is free to attend and will last approximately two hours, starting at 5:00 PM.

Alpenglow Sports is Tahoe City’s original California Mountain Shop that, for more than 39 years, has provided locals and visitors with inspiration, local knowledge, and the best equipment to enjoy the great outdoors. ¬†For additional information, please contact Brendan Madigan at Alpenglow Sports, 530.583.6917, or
