The Southcentral Alaska Avalanche Workshop is a conference to bring together snow professionals.  In the spirit of the International Snow Science Workshop, the intention is a merging of theory and practice to facilitate professional development in our community.

Above: 2016 SAAW! From upper right clockwise: Drew Hardesty gets the crowd thinking with questions on backcountry ethics, Jocelyn Cramer discusses vapor transport in avalanche debris and Conrad Chapmen gives an account of historical accidents in the Eastern Alaska Range.

This event is organized by the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Center, Alaska Pacific University and the Alaska Avalanche Information Center. It is partially funded through a generous grant from the American Avalanche Association. SAAW Organizing Committee members are: Eeva Latosuo, Graham Predeger, Heather Thamm, Wendy Wagner, Tim Glassett, Aleph Johnston-Bloom and Sarah Carter.
