Nov. 13, 2017 La Grande, Ore. — Eastern Oregon University’s Outdoor Adventure program invites winter sport enthusiasts from throughout the community to learn more about avalanche safety and watch ski and snowboard action this month.
The Wallowa Avalanche Center partnered with EOU to bring a one-and-a-half-hour avalanche safety clinic to campus Nov. 15. Attendees will learn how to identify avalanche terrain, plan for travel in winter environments, detect unstable snow and use information from an avalanche center. The class is free and begins at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 15 in Zabel Hall Auditorium.
Two weeks later, on Dec. 2, Zabel Hall will fill with skiers, snowboarders and other outdoor enthusiasts for a showing of Warren Miller’s “Line of Descent.” The film documents ties that bind ski culture and mountain lifestyle around the globe. EOU Ski and Snowboard Club sponsored the event, which opens at 5:30 with the film starting at 6 p.m. Tickets are available at the EOU Outdoor Adventure Program office and Blue Mountain Outfitters.
