S.A.F.E. A.S. Clinics is a one-day avalanche awareness and safety clinic that is beginner to experienced friendly. Founded by Elyse Saugstad, Jackie Paaso, Michelle Parker, Ingrid Backstrom, Lel Tone and Sherry McConkey with the intention to foster an open, welcoming and enthusiastic environment by which to encourage participation and communication to play in the mountains during the winter safely. Partial proceeds from the events are donated to snow community non-profits such as the Sierra Avalanche Center and the High Fives Foundation.
Participants must be ages 14 and older who are interested in starting or refreshing their knowledge of snow and avalanche safety in and out of bounds, and who enjoy a good time for a good cause. Participants are asked to provide their own avalanche beacon, shovel, probe, and backpack.
