For the sixth straight year, BRP (TSX:DOO) is taking the lead in promoting avalanche education and awareness by sponsoring nearly 60 free seminars throughout North America.

The seminars offer fresh, renewed and relevant content for riders of all skill levels, and riders of all brands are welcome and encouraged to attend. Five will be held over the next two weeks in British Columbia:

• Prince George, November 6, at 6 p.m. – Forest Power Sports Ltd.

• Kamloops, November 7, at 6 p.m. – RTR Performance

• Whistler, November 12, at 7 p.m. – 450 Whistler Way (No Limits Motorsports and Valley Chainsaw & Recreational Ltd.)

• Surrey, November 13, at 7 p.m. – Greater Vancouver Powersports

• Kelowna, November 17, at 5 p.m. – Banner Recreational Products

More than 10,000 attendees have taken part in Ski-Doo-sponsored avalanche awareness seminars since 2009. This season, the seminars are enhanced with new content and techniques so that participants – first time or returning – will find it extremely beneficial. Those who register are also encouraged to bring their friends and riding buddies to ensure those they ride with are also well informed.

“Snowmobilers’ safety comes first for BRP, which is why we are involved in the promotion of avalanche education,” said Mathieu Laforest, Global Ski-Doo Marketing director. “Together with our dealers, we’ve worked very closely with experts to design seminars that are engaging, educational and entertaining for snowmobilers.”

Seminars will be led by Jeremy Hanke, a recognized avalanche professional, a member of the Canadian Avalanche Association (CAA) advisory board and one of the creators of Throttle Decisions, a renowned avalanche safety awareness video. Jeremy is an AST 2 certified instructor.

Seminars are open to owners of all brands of sleds. For up-to-date information on locations, times or to register for an avalanche awareness seminar or more information, visit:
