Additional Info & Media

Avalanche season begins with the first layer of snow. The sliding surface can be slick grassy slopes under the new snow, or old firn/ice in glaciated areas and permanent snowfields. It’s time to dust off your beacons, shovels, probes, and skills. Start looking at the terrain with “Avalanche Eyeballs.” Early season can be a dangerous time of year. The danger will increase with any new snowfalls or wind events this month.
