Like all binge-worthy Netflix shows, we’ve brought back BEERS WITH YOUR AVALANCHE FORECASTER for a 2nd season with a simple goal to make Montana’s Winter Wonderland, fun and SAFE. Avalanche danger is currently high and this week Travis Craft will cover real-time snowpack, the recent storm cycle, and the season outlook.
We’ve also worked closely with West Central Montana Avalanche Foundation to convert the Big Sky Brewing Co. Amphitheater into Missoula’s first Beacon Training Park – and you thought Traveler’s Rest was cool. The Beacon Training Park (or “BTP” as it’s referred to by the acronym types) allows you to practice your transceiver skills on eight buried transceivers across the concert grounds. The Moose Bar serves as the master unit, just as it does at the concerts.
OK, enough of the chitchat, come on out to the brewery, drink a beer and hone your backcountry safety skills. Make some new friends and be merry. The first BEERS WITH YOUR AVALANCHE FORECASTER will be held at Big Sky Brewing Co. starting this Thursday, December 20th at 6:00 p.m. Following dates are scheduled for 1/3, 1/10, 1/17, and 1/24 also starting at 6:00 p.m, but honestly, you can show up whenever your heart desires. We hope to see you all there.
