Back-Country Safety Thesis Project.
Hey everyone,

I am an industrial design student at Wentworth institute of technology, and am currently working on my senior thesis project which is to create a product that helps create a safer experience for beginner riders in the back-country. I have been a passionate snowboarder for about 10 years and am very interested in what you guys will have to say. If you could take this survey in the link i attached, it would really help me recognize the areas of opportunity that need attention in the growth of back-country snow sports. Anything that you can contribute will be a huge help in my process. feel free to write as much or as little as you want. Thank You!!

p.s. If you are further interested in my project and would like to be a bigger part of my project you can email me at

I'm all for improving safety in the backcountry, but exactly what are you looking to do here. I'd just like to get a bit of insight on whether or not it's worth my time to spend on your survey.

Heh, you had better make an introduction video and let us know a little about what you are trying to come up with...

You really aren't that smart are you? How hard is it to read a FAQ? :storm:
