Packrafting Awareness Presentation:
Thursday, April 26th 5:30 – 7pm
Join Monica Morin for this presentation designed to educate packrafters in choosing the appropriate packrafting adventure for their skill level. Monica will explore how packrafting has evolved, and why it is growing so rapidly in popularity. She will focus on trip preparation and planning, including packrafting-specific safety equipment, packing tips, choosing trip partners, and selecting routes and rivers best suited to group skills and experience. Discover how factors such as river gradient, water level, weather conditions, remoteness, river features, and other available information can help evaluate risk potential for a particular trip. Avalanche awareness training has helped many Alaskan backcountry travelers minimize dangerous situations in their winter playgrounds. Monica hopes that this introduction to packraft awareness can help the packrafting community in similar ways.
