Magazine Description

In this issue

On the heels of the country’s deadliest winter in modern history, which saw 37 avalanche fatalities, our editors delve into the lessons from a tragic season in our first-ever Avalanche Issue. Also inside, Drew Zieff catches waves on his powsurfer to stay safe on high-danger days in the Utah backcountry, a group of avalanche survivors called the Mountain Muskox band together to create new support systems, and Jason Sumner explores how the Crested Butte Avalanche Center’s hyperlocal model keeps users safe. Plus, we review beacons, shovels, probes and other safety gear and meet Nikki Champion, North America’s youngest female avalanche forecaster.
