Shred for SMED
This Saturday, January 4th, the SMED Foundation will be joining us to kick off National Safety Month. This first weekend the focus will be avalanche awareness and the SMED Foundation will be supplying fresh batteries for guests who bring up their beacon to the beacon park. The Beacon Park will be located to the east of Needles Gondola line in the base area. Snowbasin Ski patrol will be doing demonstrations in the Beacon Park from 9 AM – 2 PM and at 3 PM in the Huntington Room they will be going over Avalanche Awareness.
The SMED Foundation will be having a contest for all those who enter the beacon park or come to the Avalanche Awareness class. You could win an Avalung pack, 100.00 gift certificate to Gear 30, Ifly, and much more! Winners will be announced after the Avalanche Awareness class.
About SMED’s Foundation:
SMED’S Foundation believes that the natural beauty of God’s earth is not only to be viewed but rather explored, especially the beautiful white powder. In memory of Ryan Smedley, who was not able to escape the ferociousness of the cascading avalanche on March 11, 2006, we commit to further the education, bring awareness and protection against avalanches in the backcountry for skiers and snow boarders. Smed’s motto stands for: Stay Mindful Educate Daily Safety. Don’t just see it, live it.
