Essential Avy and Riding Skills Workshop


Want to learn from the pros about avalanches and how to get out, get after it, and come home alive? We are holding a hands-on avalanche and advanced riding skills clinic for snowmobilers. A Thursday evening chat session is followed by field instruction near the Noblett’s Trailhead in the western Uinta Mountains. Instructors include Utah Avalanche Center forecasters along with Dan Gardiner, Phatty and the Boondockers crew. This is limited to 18 people, so we will have 6 riders per instructor. All proceeds go to the Utah Avalanche Center.

When and Where:
Thursday Mar. 15 – 6:00-9:00 pm- Tri-City Performance 461 S. 800 W. Centerville.
Evening classroom instruction- Weather, snowpack, terrain, rescue and human factors involved in avalanche accidents.

Saturday Mar. 17- 9:00 am-4:00 pm
Meet at Noblett’s Trailhead.

9:00-10:30- Can you find your buddies and can they find you? We’ll practice with beacons, probes, and shovels and learn how to make our rescues FAST and SMART.

10:30-3:30- We’ll ride around Nobletts, Mill Hollow and Tower Mountain and learn how to check out the snow, talk about the best way to access the goods, and practice making smart group decisions.
In addition, Dan and Phatty will show you how to ride like a pro.

Whether you want to drop the big cliffs or get the confidence to take your friends and family out safely, this is your chance to learn from the best.

  1. You’ve heard it over and over again, “Dont miss this”! I only repeat what you’ve always heard because its sincerely true. Craig and the boys at UAC do wonderful to get hands on and work with you. Dan and Phatty know what it takes to ride all terrain and conditions because they’ve done it and they know it intametly enough to explain and demonstrate it. Boy…anyone attending is in for a treat!!
