“Know Before You Go” Avalanche Awareness PSA

Editor's Note: This editorial was originally published in 2014, when "Know Before You Go" first launched. It's information still remains relevant to backcountry skiing and riding.

As the season gets nearer–underway, even, in some places–a host of new programs will seek to get your attention to educate you on the dangers of skiing and riding in avalanche terrain, and how to mitigate those dangers through equipment, knowledge, and most importantly, good decision-making. 

STAY SAFE: Check out TGR's Safety Week content, from survival stories to to decision-making frameworks.

A new piece from a huge collaboration of partners–The Utah Avalanche Center, the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, Avalanche Canada, Backcountry Access, the American Avalanche Association, the American Institute of Avalanche Research and Education, and the National Avalanche Center–is called Know Before You Go, and offers up a really cool, crisp, and graphically compelling PSA about rolling in uncontrolled terrain.

Watch all 15 minutes, and then check out KBYG.org for all the info, which include the framework for an hour-long seminar on basic avalanche awareness. Stay safe this winter!

Thank you for some other informative blog. Where else could I get that type of information written in such an ideal means? I have a mission that I’m just now working on, and I have been at the lookout for such information. Today I find another great article that includes latest World Edit Commands .

EA Sports' 2005 hit game , while in many ways excellent, can hardly be described as realistic. Players can stomp bone-shattering landings with ease, and have a bag of tricks which includes seemingly-impossible tricks like removing a ski midair. RELATED: Check out the TGR Journal Vol. 1 Apparently midair ski removal is less impossible than it seems, though, because Jesper Tjäder managed it. Here's a clip of the SSX trick that he's imitating:

Remember that grom segment from Faction’s The one where a little tiny Henry Sildaru chases none other than Candide Thovex around La Clusaz? Yeah, it’s probably one of the rowdiest grom segments ever shot and Faction just re-released the whole seggy online for you to watch.

On an expedition like this, pretty much anything could go wrong, but what eventually derailed their effort was
