The Mountaineers Program Center
Dennis D'Amico is an avalanche meteorologist with the Northwest Avalanche Center. He has been a weather forecaster for over ten years and this is his second season with NWAC. Dennis will discuss basic weather patterns that affect the mountains in the Pacific Northwest. He will also touch open on how to best use the existing mountain weather station network for backcountry planning purposes and how to adjust in the field when the forecast goes awry. There will be a short Q&A afterwards.
