It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party. – Jeremy Jones
Do you know when to back off and when it’s good to go? The Know Before You Go avalanche awareness program will get you started down the path of learning the language of the mountains and becoming a better and safer rider.
