• The first video above outlines why user support is vital to the sustainability and growth of avalanche center forecasting programs.
  • Your avalanche, snowpack, and weather observations help keep the public informed and assist avalanche centers when generating forecasts. Have questions about what to include within an observation? The following video unpacks the nuts and bolts of “public observation” information (e.g. bullseye data, snowpit test) and what avalanche forecasters are looking for.
