Brought to you by SCARPA Backcountry Week
This is part four 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 4 on avalanche forecasts, and stay tuned for a conclusion on Friday, July 31!
