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.
