Have you taken the avalanche survey?
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.
Your input will help improve avalanche safety information products in Canada and the United States. And, if you complete the survey by May 15th you'll be entered in a draw for several cash prizes! Take the survey here.

The survey closes on April 30th!
