Avalanche Safety

Remaining safe in the mountains can be enhanced through awareness and proper training.

Look for the obvious clues starting with the daily avalanche hazard ratings. The best sign of avalanches are other avalanches and observing rapid change, either in the weather or the snow state around you.

Spend time in the environment and prepare for all eventualities. Review the available EAS Courses we run to prepare you for such conditions

Travel awareness can enhance personal safety. Think about safety when travelling in avalanche terrain. Travel one at a time. Never put everyone on the slope at once. With large groups, split in half and stay in visual and voice contact.
