About skredkonferansen

Our goal is to get together and share our knowledge across our diverse group of people and make snow science accessible and relevant to all! We know there is a lot of exciting perspectives and knowledge to be gained, and that our shared efforts should attempt to reach out to those who would benefit from knowing more about avalanche safety.
