WELCOME TO THE 2006 INTERNATIONAL SNOW SCIENCE WORKSHOP OFFICIAL WEBSITE
We cordially invite you to join other snow scientists and avalanche practitioners to attend this biennial International Conference celebrating "A Merging of Theory and Practice" set amidst a rich history of mining and avalanches in the spectacular San Juan Mountains. 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 2006 will offer a full social agenda to complement this week of learning and enlightenment. We are pleased to announce that Dr. Ed LaChapelle has agreed to come out of retirement for an evening to deliver the keynote address at the banquet. Several other well known, and a few long-lost contributors to the San Juan Project will be in attendance to defend their name and integrity.
Traditionally, ISSW participants leave the lecture halls for a day of field observation and learning. The Telluride venue begs for a variety of field trips in to avalanche terrain which shaped the historic culture of the place and continues to govern transportation, habitation and recreational imperatives to this day.
This long-anticipated conference is a program of the San Juan Field School and is proudly hosted by the TSG Ski and Golf Co. and the Mountain Village Owner's Association.
Our presenting sponsor for this exciting event is Marmot and our supporting sponsors include Arc'Teryx, Patagonia and PIEPS (Distributed by Liberty Mountain). If you are interested in helping to sponsor this event, please click here for more information.
The beautiful historic town of Telluride, Colorado offers a wide variety of opportunities for outdoor activities including adventures in rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing, golf, horseback riding, paragliding, and more. Combine the exquisite scenery and endless opportunities for play with top of the line shops and restaurants and more bars per capita than should be legal, and you'll want to stay forever.
