As we all hunker down to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and perhaps binge on screen time, we thought it could be a great opportunity to share some online avalanche education resources. If you have other resources that you think we should add, please send us an email at email@example.com. Stay safe and stay healthy.
Remember to follow us on Facebook @ Friends of the Chugach National Avalanche Information Center, Instagram @chugachavy and our Youtube channel. This includes all the talks from our regional workshop SAAW in 2018. Check out the social media for avalanche centers around the country. A few are hosting live education events in the next couple weeks. Friends of the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is posting talks from their regional avalanche workshop CSAW2019.

If you are recreating, please do so responsibly. This includes staying close to home to not impact other communities, social distancing requirements, not pulling emergency service workers away from the important work they’re doing, and not compromising their ability to continue that work.
