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!!

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YNYXCYJ

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 zadroznya@wit.edu

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.
