Know Before You Go – Avalanche awareness video

This is an amazing short film about avalanche awareness. It’s not only a great reminder of the avalanche danger everyone is facing in the mountains, but it also shows the beauty and passion out there. Take a break and watch it. It can help saving your life and others out in the backcountry.

“It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party.” – Jeremy Jones
