Perhaps Admin can make this a sticky.

Here is a link that every Canadian should have if they venture out into the backcountry. If there is a U.S. equivalent, please post the link here!!

I get an update approximately every 2 to 3 days, there is some valuable info to help you make the decision as to where to ride and when to ride.

Hope this can save a life.

Ride safe everyone.

Mark

Was out last three days, rode Frisby, Caribou, + Mcrae. Talked to lots of guys that said they were being real carefull. Then 10mins after each conversation, each group started highmarking steep bowls at the same time. I'm sick of people talking safety and not being able to say no to that tempting hillclimb. STAY OFF THE HILLS FOR A FEW WEEKS YOU GUYS.. What is the matter with some of you guys.. One guy triggered a slide at caribou while doing a very high mark on a very high risk slope with lots of load and area. The slab was only a foot deep in that slide, but look at the accident in wyoming, it was a small face, not big and it buried the guy, he's dead!! I rode with my brother in law and we rode strictly trees and Alpine out of run out zones and we had a great time with low risk.

PS we dug a pit at frisby 3.5m deep and found two PWL's I made a video and am going to post my fidings tonight.. stay safe you guys and listen to the Avy reports like Mark is saying..
