Recording of Forecaster Chat #3- How the Sausage is Made: What goes into an avalanche forecast?

In case you weren’t able to join us (or if you wanted to revisit part of the conversation), you can watch Forecaster Chat #3 here. A big thank you goes out to Karl Birkeland, director of the National Avalanche Center, to join us for a discussion involving the North American Avalanche Danger Scale, the process of avalanche forecasting, and how to put an avalanche forecast to use. Thanks also to everybody that asked all of those good questions, it made for an interesting conversation! Congrats to the three winners of our Member Gear Giveaway, and thank you to everybody who has donated to the Friends of the Chugach National Forest Avalanche Information Center. Thanks also to Ski AK for donating the skis!
