Event Details

The North Face® Avalanche Awareness Lecture Series
in association with Snow+Rock and the Ski Club of Great Britain.



Fresh powder and the back-country have epic potential for fun and adventure but there’s a fine line between epic and dangerous. Knowledge is the best tool to keep on the safer side of the line so join this lecture tour and brush-up your understanding of winter back-country snow travel.

The lectures have been revamped for 2013 and will be delivered by Ian Sherrington, Chief Instructor at Glenmore Lodge, Scotland’s National Outdoor Training Centre. Ian is an International Mountain Guide, a ski instructor and works as a tutor for Snowsports UK. He has a wealth of outdoor leadership experience and has led ski tours in Scotland, Europe & Pakistan.

In a clear, concise way that’s not weighed down by complex snow science this interactive lecture will cover key concepts such as snowpack development and avalanche formation, how to think terrain not snow when route planning, signs of unstable snow, human factors, safe travel techniques and avalanche airbag systems. Ian’s experienced knowledge and captivating presenting style together with great photos, videos, real-life examples and personal experiences make this lecture interesting, practical and memorable thereby increasing your margin of safety on snow and especially back-country.

At each lecture there are spot prizes of The North Face® equipment to be won and there’s an overall series prize to win one of two The North Face® Patrol 24 ABS packs worth £750.

All proceeds from the lectures will go to Disability Snowsport UK. In 2012 the lecture series raised over £2,000 for the charity.
