They say the most important piece of safety equipment outdoors is your brain, and that is particularly true with staying alive in  avalanche country. We’ll address the most dangerous backcountry hazard with an avalanche prediction expert and an educator who specializes in tuning up that safety gear inside your head.  We’ll talk about how to recognize danger, how to prepare for winter travel in the backcountry, and when to stay home.
