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. ๐ŸšฉNew Snow: 90% of human triggered avalanches happen within the first 24 hours after a storm. ๐ŸšฉRecent Avalanches: If you see signs of natural avalanches, this is a sign that slopes are sliding without people getting on them. ๐ŸšฉCollapsing, shooting cracks, Whumphing Noises: Nature is literally screaming in your ear! ๐ŸšฉRapid 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. ๐ŸšฉStrong Wind: If the wind is strong enough to transport snow then the avalanche conditions can change from stable to dangerous without any new snow. ๐Ÿ‘€ // ๐Ÿ“ท: @myshellparker

@jackiepaaso getting us ready to hit the slopes for some avalanche rescue drills. Practice, practice, practice! ๐ŸŽฏ 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! // ๐Ÿ“ท: @blattphoto / @scottfreeski โค๏ธ

Our third clinic of the year is underway at @squawalpine! Hereโ€™s @leltone teaching companion rescue at @coppermtn last week. Have you guys practiced with your transceivers this year? Be prepared and constantly refresh your skills throughout the season. // ๐Ÿ“ท: @blattphoto / @backcountryaccess / @eddiebauer

The first thing we do before heading out for a day of skiing is check the avalanche report. Today @kyphoto13 and her awesome group of @coppermtn ski patrol briefed us on what is going on in the local snowpack. We love you guys! Thanks for keeping us safe. ๐Ÿ™Œ // @reccorescuetechnology / @backcountryaccess / @friendsofcaic / ๐Ÿ“ธ: @blattphoto / #safeasclinics
