Here’s a little wake up call and reminder that avalanches can happen at any time…no matter how many people have already skied the slope. All it takes is one small pocket of instability to trigger something bigger that can do a lot more damage. This guy got real lucky!

? Ski in small groups and one at a time.
? Think about route finding on ascent and descent.
? Dogs in avy terrain?  NO!!!
? Are you truly in a safe zone?
? Is it smart to huck in the BC?  NO!!!
? Recognize and respect signs of danger.
? Carry appropriate safety equipment.
? Ski within your abilities.
