Default ESPN Avalanche Awareness Series

Good on ESPN for trying to shed more light on the subject. Backcountry riding/skiing is all the rage these days. The vets around here know how bad it can get in a nanosecond.

ESPN has a dedicated section in regards to avalanche safety, and stories about them. Looks like a new article once a week running through November. The first one is about all those lost last year. Sad read. There are lessons to be learned for the n00bs and us vets alike from the tragedies. It's part of the game. Learn from the past to avoid mistakes in the future.

Check it out.
