BCMC Social Event (Presentation@7:30pm)

Avalanche Encounter at Hanging Lake

with Tristan Jenkin & Kurt Withers


Tristan Jenkin recounts the events of March 4th 2017 which led to the tragic passing of Corey Lynam in an avalanche at Hanging Lake. Together with Kurt Withers of Mountain Skills Academy and Adventures, we will review the events which transpired and decisions made by this experienced group of seasoned backcountry skiers starting at the pre trip planning phase, through to the conclusion of the search.  In honor of Corey Lynam this presentation is intended to enhance your knowledge and real life experience with Avalanche so that you can continue to enjoy the backcountry in a safer way for years to come. Please join us for this meaningful, and powerful discussion.  

The Social Presentation will take place at the Vancouver ANZA Club main floor (corner of 8th Ave and Ontario) on Tuesday, December 12th. The entrance door will open shortly before 7pm and the BCMC Social Presentation is scheduled to begin at 7:30 PM.  Please note: you must be 19+ years old to attend and may be asked to sign-in at the door to ensure we don't exceed 135 people in the hall. Feel free to grab a drink at the Bar before the social starts.
