Replying to Ideal Conditions To Avoid Avalanches?
My family and I are going out West this spring break and we have gone before but this year I would like to get into the backcountry. As I am learning more about skiing backcountry I have come to learn about how dangerous avalanches are. My question is what would be the ideal conditions to avoid avalanches. I know the snow can cause avalanches when the top hardens over the soft bottom. So should the snow be warmer, or is coldest possible better? Or should it be in the middle?
Ski In Peace to the skiers that were killed in the recent avalanche. Ronnie Berlack and Bryce Astle. No one deserves to die that young.
