The Central Oregon Avalanche Association is holding a free avalanche education program at Good Life Brewing in Bend this Tuesday. The program was developed by the Utah Avalanche Center and is designed to help backcountry skiers and travelers cultivate a basic understanding of avalanches and avalanche terrain.

According to the COAA folks, the evening should provide a rocking good time filled with solid information, insider chatter, craft beer, trip planning and commiseration about the weather. Anyone in?
