Mitch McDermott | | AvalancheAvalanche

The American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education teamed up with the Utah Avalanche Center to bring you this powerful, bone-chilling video about avalanche safety and awareness.  This is a good reminder of how not only having the necessary avalanche gear is important, but also having the proper training and knowledge on how to use it, is equally as important.

Take this heavy video to heart as winter gets into full swing and avalanche danger increases.  Before you head into the backcountry, make sure you have the proper equipment and training, always check avalanche forecasts and are prepared for the worst.  Most importantly, always Know Before You Go.
