Everyone wants to see the beautiful powder shots but there is an ugly and dark side of backcountry skiing. Avalanches lurk underneath the surface and you can't always see them but we can be prepared for them and today I am thankful I was prepared and placed a ski cut right where I did and had already chose to not ski the area in the picture. This slide ran on the nasty rotten snow that is sitting underneath almost 3 feet of new snow. Merry Christmas everyone and remember the sleeping dragon is awake! #caic#backcountryskiing#safeasclinics#christmas#avalanches#colorado#powder#skiing#knowbeforeyougo

Capturing one of the many educational & incredible moments from yesterday's avalanche safety course by @safeasclinics. Truly honored and inspired to have been taught by and alongside pros I've watched shred the big lines on the big screen. THANK YOU @elysesaugstad @ingridbackstrom @myshellparker @jackiepaaso @hibeams for putting on such a stellar event! #itssicktoknowwhatsup

Dropping into our last @safeasclinics of the season today. Falling asleep last night I was thinking about how many people we have reached through these clinics. After today we will have taught over 900 women and men about avalanche awareness in the 6 years that we have been teaching these courses and raised over $30,000 for local non-profits and avalanche centers. Whoa...that totally rules! What was once just a conversation has truly turned into a special and empowering experience. Huge thank you to @redbull @arcteryx @anonoptics @blackcrows_skis @hanahliving @gnarlynutrition @skicalifornia @wildfloursquaw @lululemon @squawalpine @coppermtn and so many other sponsors that help bring this program to life. We truly couldn’t do this without your support! Also thank you to @shejumps and @coalitionsnow for supporting our scholarship program as we want avalanche education to be available to everyone. Really really really proud of all of you who are starting your season off with education and practice so that we all can continue to come home safe. πŸ’™ Big Love!

Got to spend the day getting educated about Avy safety with the raddest female skiers and boarders in the world. Gotta say, today was one of my all time favorite mother daughter days and this lady is just as incredible in person as she is on the big screen @myshellparker #safeasclinics

The first thing we do before heading out for a day of skiing is check the avalanche report.

The lifts are spinning and snow is falling, winter is here! This time of the year I am getting my gear ready, taking first aid classes, and refreshing my avalanche awareness. It’s a routine and it’s a top priority. I love getting to share a part of that with you through @safeasclinics. This is our 6th year teaching these amazing and informative one day clinics alongside @ingridbackstrom @elysesaugstad @jackiepaaso @hibeams @kimmyfasani @codytownsend and my personal sensei @leltone.

@elysesaugstad and I hosted a quick @safeasclinics last week at @squawalpine. I love passing on avalanche awareness knowledge and think that it's imperative to our mountain community to do so.

Until just recently, my career as a writer consisted entirely of long-winded instagram captions and daily text message rants to my friends about things like my hatred for silver puffy jackets or how much I love tiny woodland creatures. I also take copious amounts of photos. Apparently that's a good combo, because a few weeks ago I was given the opportunity to play photographer and do a write-up on the @safeasclinics at Crystal. I had gobs of fun hanging out with both my best friends and my idols while brushing up on arguably the most important thing in a skiers world, avalanche education. Check out the blog post @evo dot com πŸ’š the link is in my profile. I think I might kinda like this whole writing thang...β€’

THANK YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU!! Wow. My last little bit of freedom before I hit the books hard to study for boards was made amazing (and affordable) by some incredible humans. Warning... long thank you list below: From being my adventure mate, ski partner, workout partner, and my friend ..to trusting me to be your ski and adventure partner ..to the airport pick ups and drop offs from Charlotte, Hayden, Grand Junction, and San Diego ..to the buddy passes from my patroller and employee friends at Winter Park and Steamboat ..to the car I borrowed and rides we shared to get to and from Steamboat, Ouray, Winter Park, Telluride, Silverton, and Fruita ..to the many couches and beds you let me crash on without charge ..to showing me secret hot springs in the San Juans ..to showing me backcountry lines and sweet Silverton lines ..to scoring me touring gear during an unexpected 12 hour layover in SLC ..to the SD/GJT airport employees for letting my overweight bag(s) slide and count as a free "boot bag" (what kind of tourist packs 2 pairs of skis/boots?).. to the wonderful acrobats at Acrolove who were gentle with me since I was feeling under the weather and the others who let me rest in their hotel room when I discovered I had a fever .. to the enthusiastic students who were so excited to learn. I didn't even realize I was under the weather when I was teaching at Acrolove .. to my family who is always there for me and sends me love and support no matter how near or far and to all of the other people who filled my holidays with fun and laughter and love... thanks for a great end to 2016 and here's to the start of a beautiful new year ❀️ (first step... get rid of this fever πŸ€’) πŸ“Έ @another_hack

Flash back to sleeping in D lot the night before the #safeasclinics Saturday at #crystalmountain. Temp was 16 when I rolled in at midnight and 4 when I woke up at 6 AM.

Wrapping up 2016 with gratitude as I share my new article about the @safeasclinics that I wrote for @tetongravity (link in bio!) It was an amazing experience meeting and learning from several of my personal heroes who turned out to be truly incredible people! (Shout out to @elysesaugstad @myshellparker @ingridbackstrom and @jackiepaaso ) In 2016 I saw quite a few of my dreams turn into reality only to discover that what once seemed like a milestone is really just a stepping stone on a path I'm really digging. Today I'm counting my lucky stars and ramping up for 2017... I have a feeling it's going to be the best year yet. β„οΈπŸ˜‰β›·οΈ

There is nothing more important than being safe in the mountains, not even snacks, and snacks are very important to me. I spent International Women's Ski Day getting my avi education on with all of these amazing ladies.

Running through an avalanche scenario during my Intro to Avalanche clinic with @safeasclinics this weekend. Going to play in the mountains? Then I need to know how to be safe and what to do if shit hits the fan.

They never mentioned that in order to do science you must have gnarly hands.

Just kidding, that's a decade of climbing and circus that did that.

There is a silver lining to every cloud and in this case a peaked interest in "the lurking dragon", aka the persistent weak layer, has woken me up to being more vigilant than ever with understanding the processes that keep skiing fun and skiers alive.
