Came across this awesome video yesterday featuring a friend of mine who works for the Utah Avalanche Center. They are the people who give the forecast when it comes to avalanche danger and such. Trent is super knowledgable and this video overviews the current snow pack conditions that Utah is seeing. There have been several avalanches already, and with the weather we’ve been having, there are bound to be more.
I am no expert on the backcountry when it comes to snow, skiing, and avalanche danger. I am a resort skier, but I still feel like the education is important. Just like educating ourselves for backcountry expeditions in the summer, we must be prepared in the winter. Enjoy this video and have fun out there in the snow, and be safe!
