Winter weather and climate for the Colorado skier and explorer
Jon’s talk will be geared toward typical weather and snowpack conditions in Colorado for the skier in winter and for the backcountry skier as the end of winter approaches and spring begins. Avalanche safety and backcountry preparedness are included. His book, Classic Colorado Ski Descents, will be featured to give participants ideas of some of the best places to ski in Colorado. Then Jon will share his experience climbing Mount Everest without the use of supplemental oxygen, with discussions on strategy, risk management and weather considerations for the highest mountain in the world.Registration required.
