Be Prepared2021-12-15T22:59:31+00:00

• Have a list of contact information, allergies and medication on your person in case our emergency team needs to know!
• Mother Nature can be unpredictable! Though we will be monitoring the weather at all times, to prepare, it’s important that you check the weather right before leaving for the event. This way you can be prepared with rain gear, warm clothes, or anything else you may need to be comfortable in the case of unpleasant weather.
• Stay hydrated and be prepared for sun! It can get very hot in September in Snowmass, make sure you have plenty of sunscreen and a good plan for having water near you at all times! (Remember empty camelbacks and plastic water bottles are allowed in, bring them and take advantage of out water fill stations)
