How are your backcountry terrain choices affected by other riders’ behavior? How does your behavior affect their terrain choices? Join visiting professor Andrea Mannberg for a stimulating talk about the flip side of sociability.

Andrea Mannberg is a professor at UiT – The Arctic University in Tromso, Norway. Andrea leads the White Heat project, an international collaborative research effort that aims to generate new and usable knowledge on excessive risk-taking behavior in general, and on factors behind decision errors in avalanche terrain in particular.
