B.A.S.I.C.S. Avalanche Awareness Video

Posted on the 28 November 2012 by Kimkircher

Last year 44 people died last year in the U.S. from avalanches. Since most of these fatalities happened to those that were familiar with the risks and how to mitigate them, many avalanche education programs are shifting their focus to the human factors involved in accidents. If we have all the equipment and the knowledge and are still making the wrong choices, there must be more to the equation. The problem must be our judgment. The High Fives Foundation B.A.S.I.C.S. program (Be Aware Safe in Crazy Situations) recently released this video on avalanche awareness. Check it out. It’s worth a look.
