Additional Info & Media
The snowpack at HP is still very thin. Once the snowpack builds up to warrant avalanche advisories we will begin to issue Saturday advisories and conditions updates.
In the meantime while we all await snow, take this chance to go through your avalanche gear and ensure everything is in working order. Put new batteries in your beacons, practice assembling your probe and practice using it. Run through rescue scenarios with your friends and partners. Your practice now could save a life in the future.
Checkout this informative video on the North American Avalanche Danger Scale. There’s some good information and reminders in here for backcountry users of all experience levels.
And if you have not already listened to Doug Krause speak on communication as it relates to avalanche safety, this experienced forecaster has concise points we can all relate to and learn from.
