Know Before You Go

Know Before You Go  is a product of Avalanche Canda, Colorado Avalanche Information Center, National Avalanche Center, Northwest Avalanche Center, and the Utah Avalanche Center. It has become the North American standard for teaching avalanche awareness. Anyone who lives, works, or plays near snow-covered mountains needs to have a basic understanding of avalanche danger, where to go for resources available to learn more about avalanches, and most importantly the motivation to gain more knowledge.
