Join the Colorado Avalanche Information Center (CAIC) and Colorado Mountain College for a three day workshop on Mountain Meteorology.
Morning sessions will provide a basic understanding of meteorological principles applied to weather in mountainous areas. Afternoon sessions will focus on using publicly available weather information to create a local forecast.
Participants will interact with experienced weather forecasters and work in small groups to generate and present their own forecasts. This workshop is designed for avalanche practitioners and avid recreationalists. Anyone interested in mountain weather phenomena is welcome and no previous meteorological education is required.
