Skredkonferansen are proud to announce our last presentation on the saturday to be an online presentation by Doug Chabot with the title Making tracks and avoiding death.
Well-known mountain guide and raconteur Doug Chabot is looking at the differences of risk (recreation vs living in avalanche terrain) and danger to vastly different populations.
The talk centers on his experiences in Montana, USA and Afghanistan, talking about how we combat deaths through Education, Research and Forecasts in both places using different objectives to reach the same goal of saving lives.
Doug will showcase 1 accident in each country to illustrate the points of these objectives and the inherent problems of each.
