BRP Sponsors Free Avalanche Seminars

BRP Sponsors Free Avalanche Seminars

| On 23, Sep 2015

Avalanche Awareness Seminars Scheduled Throughout North America This Fall

If you’ve ever thought that mountain snowmobile manufacturers should take on responsibility for promoting the safe use of their products, you’re not alone. BRP agrees with you, and has put their money where their mouth is by sponsoring nearly 60 free avalanche education seminars throughout North America this fall.

These avalanche awareness seminars, which have seen more than 10,000 attendees since 2009, have been enhanced for 2015 with new and updated content that should be interesting and relevant ever for riders who have attended one of the events before.

The seminars are open to anyone: not just Ski-Doo riders, and it’s encouraged that all riders spending time in the mountains attend, especially groups that ride together.

“Snowmobilers’ safety comes first for BRP, which is why we are involved in the promotion of avalanche education,” said Mathieu Laforest, Global Ski-Doo Marketing director. “Together with our dealers, we’ve worked very closely with experts to design seminars that are engaging, educational and entertaining for snowmobilers.”

Seminars in Canada will be led by Jeremy Hanke, a recognized avalanche professional, a member of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) advisory board and one of the creators of Throttle Decisions, a renowned avalanche safety awareness video. Jeremy is an AST 2 certified instructor.

Mike Duffy of Avalanche 1, a recognized snowmobile expert in avalanche awareness, leads seminars in the United States. Duffy has American Avalanche Association Level I & II and AvPro Level III certification, teaches at Colorado Mountain College and Silverton Avalanche School, and has been giving snowmobile-specific avalanche classes since 1996.  Duffy has more than 25 years of mountain riding and mountain rescue experience. This is his fifth year working with BRP.
