We are focusing each early season update on one of the Know Before You Go ‘GETS’. Today’s GET is GET OUT OF HARMS WAY (check out the Know Before You Go video link in case you haven’t seen it).
Part of GETTING OUT OF HARMS WAY is knowing the terrain we are in, how we are approaching that terrain, where people in our group are and ways to minimize bad outcomes in the event an avalanche occurs. Read the points below. These are ways we stack the odds in our favor!
