A free avalanche awareness seminar was put on by Skidoo, hosted by DC TrailBlazn’ Power Ltd on November 5.
The seminar touched base on the importance of proper gear, training, and pre-trip planning as well as many other aspects of riding and safety.
For 10 years BRP has been helping make sure sledding riders come home safely to ride another day.
The seminar was presented by Marshall Dempster who is a member of the Valemount; Frozen Pirate: avalanche safety training and professional guide services.
Dempster has many years of experience and a very board skill set when it comes to avalanche training and education. His passion for snowmobiling and the backcountry is quite apparent through his teachings making a very engaging and interactive presentation.
“We had a great turn out with lots of young faces. I’m very optimistic for our future generation of riders,” says sales manager Genevieve Byl.
