The Jackson Hole Babe Force is excited to invite you to spend this Sunday evening, December 7, talking about risk – understanding risk, evaluating risk, and communicating risk- with Sarah Carpenter from the American Avalanche Institute. While Sarah will be focused mainly on risk as it pertains to snow and avalanches, conversations and concepts about risk can always be applied to our daily lives and other activities.
Sarah will begin her talk at 5:00 pm at the Wright Training gym, located at 3620 South Park Drive, Jackson, WY.
Please RSVP by clicking here if you plan to attend so that we can monitor numbers. We would LOVE for you to share this invite with other lady rippers who are interested in learning more about risk management during winter recreation.
