Avalanche Awareness 

Going into Avalanche Terrain

When you are going out into the back country plan ahead. Make sure you are prepared for the worst. Be sure to have adequate training and equipment to be able to respond to someone being caught in an avalanche. More importantly understand what avalanche terrain is and how to assess conditions in order to minimize your exposure.

REMEMBER: You and your team are your only help in the event of an avalanche, by the time a rescue team has arrived there is a 99% chance that who ever is still buried is going to be dead.
