Avalanche 2017, 12th edition

Welcome to the “Avalanche 2017” event website. This is the place where you will find all the details in regards to the 12th edition of the largest winter event of geocachers in the world! These details will be updated regularly, so check this page out as often as possible.

First, we would like to inform you that, because of exceptional circumstances, the event was published later than planned. We offer our sincere apologies to the Québec geocaching community.

On the other hand, once again this year, the geocachers of the province and elsewhere, will have the chance to meet again at the Parc Regional du Bois de Belle-Rivière in Mirabel, to have fun, discuss GPS, geocaching, exchange tips and tricks and participate in the many activities offered on the premises. Like the previous years, there will be a draw for a GPS and you will also be able to win one of the prizes offered by our sponsors and the geoshop..

The last two years have been exceptional for the Avalanche event and we want to thank the geocaching community for this tremendous success. However, this year the event will be more modest than in previous years. We are currently working on a project for future Avalanche events, which will undoubtedly make everyone happy. But do not worry, there will be many activities on site and of course, many new and old geocaches will be ready to be found by the whole family.

Visit this website regularly to be informed of the latest developments.

Don’t forget to log your “Will Attend” on the event page (GC6Z813).

Looking forward to meet you all at this not-to-be-missed event on March 4th.
