ARC'TERYX AVALANCHE AWARENESS TOUR 2012

11th October – 1st November 2012

The Arc’teryx Ride Hard, Ride Safe! Tour 2012 is a series of live multimedia talks about how to have fun and be safe while riding off piste this season.  The talks are presented at Ellis Brigham stores by Henry of Henry’s Avalanche Talk (HAT)

Henry is an internationally renowned snow and avalanche expert who studied avalanche forecasting as part of a geology degree in the United States and then moved to the French Alps where he works as an off-piste ski guide and director of HAT. He has given over 750 talks and courses in the last 20 years including presenting at international snow science conferences. He has published many papers and articles – often in the British press.

Henry created HAT in response to the fact that 9 out of 10 victims of avalanches trigger the avalanche themselves and many of these avalanches could have been avoided.

The hour and a half ‘Essentials’ presentation is full of exciting images, video and stories of great skiing along with close calls with danger. In these talks, Henry will show you how to answer the question, “Is it safe out there”? He delivers a risk management formula that will help you to see how riding off piste can be no more dangerous than the activities that you engage in each day.

The in-depth talks in London and Manchester are also filled with dynamic images and video and will allow you to better understand how avalanches are triggered by people – thus helping you to avoid triggering them in the first place.

DATES, TIMES & PLACES:
The price is £8.00 per talk.
