19th Annual Colorado Snow Science Workshop (CSAW)
CSAW is an annual continuing education event, geared toward avalanche workers, but open to everyone. This year’s workshop is a virtual event with recorded talks that you can view ahead of time and live sessions where you can talk to other participants and the speakers on October 14, 15, and 16, 2020. Registration opens on August 1 (click here to register). A preliminary schedule of the event is available here.
Spring and Summer Avalanche Safety
Avalanches are possible any time you find snow on steep slopes in Colorado. Although accidents are less likely in the summer, there have been fatal accidents every month of the year. Please see the Statewide Avalanche Discussion for some general avalanche safety advice for the spring and summer.
Our next scheduled update is November 1, 2020. We will continue to monitor snowpack and weather conditions through the summer, and will issue updates if we anticipate unusually dangerous avalanche conditions before then. Thanks for another great season, and we will see you again in Fall 2020! Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
