Avalanche Safety Information Study

The Avalanche Research Program at Simon Fraser University, Avalanche Canada and several U.S. Avalanche Forecast Centers are conducting a large online survey to examine how backcountry recreationists—skiers, mountain snowmobilers, snowshoers and ice climbers—seek and use avalanche safety information.

We are interested to hear from backcountry users of all experience levels about how they use avalanche forecasts and how the existing products could be enhanced to address their needs. The results of this study will provide important information for improving avalanche safety information products in Canada and the United States.

As a token of our appreciation, participants who complete the survey before May 15, 2019 will be entered in a draw for several cash prizes. Click here for more information.
