This December marks @jonessnowboards 8th annual Avalanche Awareness month. In celebration of learning, practicing, and always coming home safe, here are the 5 red flags...keep these in mind every time you are in the mountains. New Snow: 90% of human triggered avalanches happen within the first 24 hours after a storm. Recent Avalanches: If you see signs of natural avalanches, this is a sign that slopes are sliding without people getting on them. Collapsing, shooting cracks, Whumphing Noises: Nature is literally screaming in your ear! Rapid Temperature rise: Shallow loose snow and slab avalanches may occur as surface layers weaken rapidly. If deeper instabilities are present, deep slab avalanches could be triggered. Strong Wind: If the wind is strong enough to transport snow then the avalanche conditions can change from stable to dangerous without any new snow. // : @myshellparker
@jackiepaaso getting us ready to hit the slopes for some avalanche rescue drills. Practice, practice, practice! Statistically, a victim has only a 50% chance of survival if buried about 25 minutes. The first 15 minutes are especially critical. You want to be thorough and fast. Practice group drills with your backcountry partners and individual searches so that you are prepared if something were to happen. You are the help! // : @blattphoto / @scottfreeski
