Snow Science and Safety 

Snow Science and Safety

Have you ever wondered how something so delicate as snowflakes can cause an avalanche?  If this is something you would be interested in learning more about, then come on out to the free Snow Science and Safety with Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center on Sunday, February 27, 2022, at Whitefish Trail. 

Join us on the snowy trail to learn the basics about snow science and safety with the Friends of the Flathead Avalanche Center. We will look at how snow forms, how snow packs change, why avalanches occur, and how to use some of the basic safety equipment. You will never look at snow the same way again! ~ Whitefish Legacy Partners
