Avalanche Awareness Infographic

Avalancheawareness

In an effort to educate myself more about the rules of the backcountry, avalanche safety and rescue techniques I took a 3-day AIRE Level 1 Avalanche training course. I highly recommend all my friends get the training, but in the meantime I wanted to put together a little recap or cheat sheet on some of the various things I took home.

Granted their is only so much you can put into a drawing, but I tried to capture some of the key things to consider as your planning your trip, picking your team, selecting appropriate terrain and venturing up or down the mountain.
