2019 Highmark/Mammut Avalanche Education Tour Announced

Mountain Sports Distribution is proud to present the Avalanche Education Snowmobile Outreach Tour, returning for its third year across the US. In partnership with Highmark Avalanche Airbags and Mammut, this multi-state tour will feature presentations through October and November.

Presenters Jeremy Hanke of Soul Rides Adventures and Duncan Lee of Let’s Ride Adventures will be presenting an engaging snowmobile-specific talk on avalanche safety in select snowmobile dealerships. Both Hanke and Lee have over 25 years of backcountry experience and bring a unique take to the world of motorized use avalanche safety.

Current stops are scheduled at 7 locations, taking place in the evenings. Attendees will receive a “straight-shooting” talk on making the right choices in the backcountry as well as have access to one-time-only deals from Highmark Airbags and Mammut. New this year will include a hands-on avalanche education for the hosting dealer’s staff.

Jeremy Hanke has been presenting with the tour for three years. His first-hand experience is wildly compelling and engages audience unlike any other avalanche seminar in the world. Says Hanke of sharing his story, he hopes that it might help save others from what could have happened to him. “That (burial) is only one of many experiences. I just hope people don’t make the same mistakes I have lived through. That’s why I do this sort of work.”

Duncan Lee is a founder of the Alpine Assassins, a pro rider collective, as well as Let’s Ride Adventures, which provides snowmobile avalanche education and produces a video series. Duncan sits on the board of AIARE (American Institute of Avalanche Research & Education).

Admission cost for these awesome sessions is (usually) $25, with more information on the Highmark Airbags website. To sign up as a dealer, please contact your MSD (Highmark / Mammut) Rep.
