February’s Good Morning Truckee focused on avalanches, search & rescue. The speakers were David Reichel, Executive Director for Sierra Avalanche Center; Logan Talbot, Board Member from Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue; and Steven Siig and Jared Drake, co-writers and directors of Buried – the film about the 1982 Alpine Meadows avalanche.

Presentations included information on avalanche forecasting, snowpack, weather observations, educational and safety programs; emergency search and rescue operations including the team, advancements in equipment to assist in searches, and regional collaborations. Wrapping up will be a presentation on Buried – the award-winning documentary film of survivors, rescuers, and eyewitnesses recounting their experience of the 1982 Alpine Meadows avalanche – a pivotal piece of our history.

Whether you are new to the community or have lived here for years, hearing from our leaders in the community is an enjoyable way to stay on top of important issues, connect and engage. One of the great things about living in a small community like Truckee is that you can personally know your leaders and work with them to make a difference.
