Speakers include David Reichel, Executive Director for Sierra Avalanche Center; Logan Talbot, Board Member from Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue; Steven Siig and Jared Drake, co-writers and directors of “Buried” – the film about the 1982 Alpine Meadows avalanche.

Presentations will focus on avalanche forecasting, snowpack, weather observations, educational and safety programs; emergency search and rescue operations including the team, advancements in equipment to assist in searches, and regional collaborations. Wrapping up will be a presentation on “Buried” – the award-winning documentary film of survivors, rescuers, and eyewitnesses recounting their experience of the 1982 Alpine Meadows avalanche – a pivotal piece of our history.
