Backcountry Safety Basics Part 2: Avalanche Terrain

Clay Malott | | AvalancheAvalanche

Brought to you by SCARPA Backcountry Week

This is part two of the Backcountry Safety Basics series, a four-part series on backcountry safety. The series will cover four basic tenets of backcountry safety: snow science, avalanche terrain, group dynamics, and avalanche forecasts.

The goal of this series is to provide baseline knowledge about how to stay alive in the backcountry. This is not a substitute for a certified AIARE avalanche course.

Enjoy part 2 on avalanche terrain, and stay tuned for remaining parts 3 and 4, as well as a conclusion on Friday!
