Thursday night was magic!

She Jumps PDX was  fortunate to have Lindsey Clark up from Bend to teach the avalanche awareness clinic!

Lindsey, a local backcountry skier,  avalanche educator and our own awesome Product Manager, lead us through various topics such as how one identifies avalanche terrain, why and how they happen, best practices for travel in avalanche terrain, local and regional resources to use throughout the season, and upcoming opportunities for more in-depth avalanche education in Oregon this season. Footage shot all over the world was shared and helped drive home the various learnings.  The presentation was followed-up by a question and answer session as well as a generous raffle!

While the winter in Oregon has left a bit to be desired, the stoke is still extremely high!!
