Join the Northwest Avalanche Center for the fourteenth annual Northwest Snow and Avalanche Workshop (NSAW). NSAW is the region’s largest gathering of snow and avalanche professionals and backcountry recreationists who work and travel in avalanche terrain. NSAW covers topics on recent scientific research, technical innovations, avalanche safety, and mountain experience. Talks will range from scholarly research to every day application; all attendees, regardless of experience, will walk away with new tools for the backcountry. NSAW is an opportunity to hear from leading avalanche practitioners and take the next step in your backcountry education. As a result of Covid-19 NSAW will be held virtually over the course of two weeks with four distinct sessions. Although we cannot gather in-person, this format presents a unique opportunity to connect with the ever growing backcountry community of the Pacific Northwest and beyond.
