What's the next best thing to climbing with the best athletes? Hearing about their adventures right at home! The PAF lineup includes tales of adventure, exploration, hardship, and triumph from local, regional, and national athletes. PAF speaking events aim to inspire and bring our outdoor community together. We look forward to seeing you events!
Our travels through the mountains are rich with what we need to learn to keep safe on future adventures. Events, non-events and near misses can be harvested for the information that can bolster our decision-making skills.
The first half of the evening will be a lecture focusing on how to make the most of the NWAC avalanche forecast. The second half will be a casual question-and-answer session. Please bring any and all questions about NWAC forecasts; how to use the forecasts; and questions about avalanches themselves.
In the spirit of true exploration, Katie Mills, Nick Pappas, and Wojtek and Amy Pagacz flew into an unknown valley in the Nahanni National Park Reserve of the Northwest Territories of Canada with no photos no maps and no information other than a youtube video flyover correlated to Google Earth.
In December 2018, alpinists Ari Novak and Karsten Delap set out for India to explore one of the most remote valleys in the Indian Himalaya with local Indian climber Karn Kowshik.
