As we all know—and are very excited about—most of the West has received copious amounts of new snow these past few days. We’re all glad about that and are excited to ride.
But all that snow is falling on some pretty crappy snow. When we say crappy, we mean snow that makes for ideal avalanche conditions.
So are you checking avalanche conditions before you and your friends head out? It’s not hard to do and it only takes a few minutes. Go here to find an avalanche center near you: http://www.avalanche.org/.
All the conditions in these pictures are as of this morning.
No one wants to become that kind of a statistic.
