Skiers Advocating and Fostering Education and Snow Safety, SAFE AS all women’s avalanche clinics return for 5th year and introduce their first ever co-ed class.
The revolution is coming: avalanche education for all! In 2017-18, you can expect big changes in how avalanche courses are taught, with recreationists and pros taking separate tracks that better suit their own needs.
BCA and Ski-Doo maker BRP have joined forces this season to amplify their efforts to educate snowmobilers on avalanche safety, with more than 40 free Ski-doo Tour seminars throughout North America.
The best way to travel in unknown or whiteout backcountry terrain is with a GPS device or GPS phone application. Using travel aids is a great way to increase safety and is an important skill for any backcountry traveler to have. It can even help identify potential avalanche terrain before you get there. Mike Alkaitis reports.
Dylan and Dom, both unhurt and a bit mind-blown, stood 70 feet below in between some sizable waist-high snow boulders where the slide ran out into the flats just before the closed Vermont road. This was a quick reminder that we are not immune to slides on the east coast. Carter Snow reports.
As someone relatively new to the backcountry scene, Dan Scannura’s opportunities for decision-making have been few and far between. After countless hours of avy training, watching videos, and dreaming, it was finally his turn to strive for epic adventures (and experience some un-epic ones too!)
Ride Rasmussen Style, the Idaho- based snowmobile riding school has expanded into Europe with a new base in the Arctic Circle Finland headed up by Wille Rajala.
