Winter Mountain Safety Lecture – Davy Gunn

The Avalanche Tool Box

Presented by Davy Gunn

Davy Gunn

The 2nd lecture in the 2016 series of Clachaig’s Winter Mountain Safety Lectures is presented by Glencoe based Davy Gunn.

About the lecture

Asked to describe the content of the lecture, Davy simply says,  “The bad old days, rescue from the deep white room, managing uncertainty in avalanche terrain, and developing a strategic mindset.’

Clachaig’s lectures are informal by design, and will hopefully be as entertaining as they are educational. For 2016 lectures will be presented in the Boots Bar. There is no charge for entry. Start will be 8pm approx. If part of a larger group, please give us some advance notice so that we can do our best to prepare accordingly. To help us to continue to improve and develop the series, we’d be very grateful for your feedback after the lecture.

The series is sponsored by Mammut UK and sales support on the evening will be provided by Nevisport. Please give them your support and encouragement so that the lecture series can continue to be provided free at the point of delivery.

About Davy

Avalanche Training

Davy is often to be seen at Glencoe Mountain working as a Ski Patroller. He is also a Recco Rescue Systems Trainer and an American Avalanche Association Professional. When there’s no snow to be had, you’ll find Davy busy with his bikes at CrankItUpGear in Glencoe village.

Davy is a little shy about when it comes to giving us a bio, so we got one from another lecturer from last year’s series, Dave ‘Heavy’ Whalley. He says, “I have known Davy Gunn for nearly 30 years he has an incredible back ground especially in Mountain Rescue as a former Member of the Glencoe Mountain Rescue Team. His knowledge especially in the field of Rescue,emergency care, Avalanche training and education is second to none. If you want the knowledge and the training to educate and stay safe in these environments Davy is the man to go to you will learn so much from a man with so much experience to pass on. You will not be disappointed!”
