Winter Mountain Safety Lecture – Graham Moss
Effective decision making in avalanche terrain
Presented by Graham Moss
Arisaig based Graham Moss UIMLA, WML, MBL presents the fourth and final lecture in the 2020 series of Clachaig’s Winter Mountain Safety Lectures.
About the lecture:
Decision making in the winter mountains can be a difficult and complex process. The Be Avalanche Aware initiative provides a robust framework for good decision making in avalanche terrain. This lecture will introduce the Be Avalanche Aware process and help you establish good patterns of behaviour for the future
Clachaig’s lectures are informal by design, and will hopefully be as entertaining as they are educational. For 2020 lectures will be presented in the Boots Bar. There is no charge for entry. Start will be 8pm approx. If part of a larger group, please give us some advance notice so that we can do our best to prepare accordingly. To help us to continue to improve and develop the series, we’d be very grateful for your feedback after the lecture.
The series is sponsored by Rab. Please give them your support and encouragement so that the lecture series can continue to be provided free at the point of delivery.

About the Lecture Series
Now in the 35th year, the Clachaig Winter Mountain Safety Lecture series is the longest running safety initiative of its kind. Designed to be a last port of call before setting off into the winter hills, each lecture will look at key safety considerations which may well be a timely reminder when planning your outing for the next day.

We are particularly keen to ensure that the lecture series remains FREE ENTRY as it has done since its inception. However, there are costs and we are extremely grateful for the backing and financial support of Rab. Their belief in the value of the lectures has ensured that the series can continue to be delivered for the 2020 season.
Whilst the lectures are free, we will be asking you to part with a pound, or three, as we raise funds for a defibrillator for the glen throughout the course of FebruaryFest.
Tickets will be on sale on the night, and throughout February at Clachaig
Supported by Nevisport Fort William
