Friends of CAIC hosts three key events each year (CSAW, The CAIC Benefit Bash, and COBAW) and partners with our sponsors for many more events across the state each season. Check out the calendar below to find one near you!

Friends of CAIC and the CAIC are excited to bring you the 4th Annual Colorado Backcountry Avalanche Workshop (COBAW) presented by Colorado Mountain School and sponsored by RAB, Hestra, and Fat Tire.

COBAW is back live at the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, on March 2nd at 5:30pm!

COBAW is not an awareness clinic. It is aimed at more experienced backcountry users who want to dig deeper and continue their education. Past sessions have included: - What’s your problem - An in-depth look at avalanche problems and how to use them in your decision making- Do You Know What Your Map Knows? Understanding Digital Elevation Models for Better Trip Planning- Learning from a Historic Avalanche Cycle Our topics and speaker line up for 2023 will be announced soon!

The session will also be live streamed - however interactions with the speakers will be limited to those who attend. The last time we brought this event to the AMC, it sold out quickly, so don't wait and grab your $25 early bird tickets today!
