To everyone that ride sleds in the mountains, please be use your heads and be safe. This season has already claimed a high number of souls to the white concrete. Avalanches are nothing to joke about. They're are unscrupulous killers. If you're in doubt about an area you see that you want to ride and it's got some angle to it, please just go someplace else. Live to ride another day. The perfect powder that beckons you is never worth your life. Don't become a statistic.
Current avalanche numbers (notice the high number of snowmobiles involved)
ALWAYS check the advisories before going out for the day --> Avalanche Advisories & Bulletins
With the big storm that hit the mountain region in the US this weekend coupled by more storms on the way, avalache danger is extremely high all over the place. Arrive alive sledders!
