Doors open at 5:30, and the show starts at 6 p.m. Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort, Legacy Ford, Hobby Habit and Eli Mayes Dental partnered to sponsor the event.
Tickets are available at the OAP office in Hoke 118 and Blue Mountain Outfitters. General admission tickets are $10, and $5 for EOU students. All proceeds benefit the Wallowa Avalanche Center and the EOU Ski and Snowboard Club.
“Get excited for the coming winter season and watch amazing ski and snowboard footage from exotic locals like Chile, Iceland and New Zealand,” said OAP Director Michael Hatch.
Hatch will host a free evening of avalanche awareness training from 6:30 to 8 p.m., on Wednesday, Nov 28.
“This evening presentation is packed with information aimed at anyone who is serious about winter recreation,” Hatch said.
The EOU Outdoor Adventure Program, in partnership with the Wallowa Avalanche Center, presents the 90-minute clinic that focuses on the fundamentals of traveling safely in winter environments where avalanche hazards exist. The presentation addresses avalanche hazard awareness, tour planning, familiarity with avalanche center advisories, basic equipment considerations, and the need for skill in companion rescue.
