Know Before You Go
This year, I will be facilitating a number of Know Before You Go Avalanche Awareness Trainings. I've been around a fair bit of awareness curriculum over the years and KBYG is by far the best template out there.
From Know Before You Go http://kbyg.org/
Avalanches kill an average of 42 people each year in North America. Hundreds more are injured. Avalanches don't just happen to extreme athletes - they can happen to those skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking, driving, hunting, bike riding, and more - anyone who can get onto or underneath steep snow-covered slopes. Many avalanche victims don’t know they are in avalanche danger and are unprepared to deal with an avalanche. This doesn't have to happen – the danger signs are usually obvious to those who know what to look for.
Know Before You Go is a free avalanche awareness program. Not much science, no warnings to stay out of the mountains, no formulas to memorize. In 90 minutes, you will see the destructive power of avalanches, understand when and why they happen, and learn how you can have fun in the mountains and avoid avalanches.
