Avalanche Safety Tutorial

In this post we look at a great resource that provides a view at different aspects of avalanche and back-country safety.   Avalanche.org is a US based organisation

Avalanche.org connects the public to formal avalanche information and education in the United States. Avalanche.org is a partnership between the American Avalanche Association (A3) and the US Forest Service National Avalanche Center (NAC).
