Marmot is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2010 International Snow Science Workshop.
The International Symposium of Snow Science and avalanche practice will be held from October 17 - 22, 2010 at the Resort at Squaw Creek in beautiful Squaw Valley, California.
This gathering, which occurs once every two years, includes scientists and avalanche practitioners attending this biennial International Conference celebrating “A Merging of Theory and Practice”. Set amidst a rich history of alpine skiing and snow sports in the spectacular Lake Tahoe basin this meeting of the minds provides our unique industry with a forum in which to discuss theories, present papers and explore innovative new research topics during a five day period of interaction and conviviality.
ISSW 2010 will offer a full social agenda to complement this week of learning and enlightenment. Traditionally, ISSW participants leave the lecture halls for a day of field observation and learning. Lake TahoeThe Lake Tahoe venue, home of the 1960 winter Olympics, begs for a variety of field trips in to avalanche terrain which shaped the historic culture of the place and continues to govern habitation and recreational imperatives to this day.
This will be the third ISSW Presented by Marmot, following the meetings in Telluride, CO (2006) and Whistler, BC (2008).
