Call for Speakers - Colorado Avalanche Info Center's Annual Workshop - Oct 2010

On Friday, October 8, 2010, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) will host the 9th Annual Colorado Snow and Avalanche Workshop at the National Mining Museum in historic Leadville, CO.

Pre-registration is encouraged and will be through the CAIC website beginning in September. The CAIC staff are still finalizing the schedule, but anticipate workshops until 4:30 pm with a social event to follow. Updates will be posted on their website.

At this time, the CAIC staff is asking that anyone interested in presenting a talk contact them at with "CSAW" in the subject line. Please include a brief outline on the topic you wish to present, an author biography, and your contact information. Past topics have included the use of explosives in grid patterns to increase stability, theories of avalanche flow and the best way to survive if caught, case studies of recent avalanche accidents, and the annual winter forecast presented by the Grand Junction National Weather Service Office.
