Henry's Avalanche Talk

How to stay safe so you can have more fun off piste

In 90% of avalanche accidents, the slide is triggered by a person - either the victim, or someone in their group sets it off, or someone above them triggers it. It is almost always a dry slab avalanche that is triggered by the victim(s), not a spontaneous wet snow avalanche that comes down from above. This is good news, because it means that we are in control. We can manage the risk.

If we make good choices we can keep it safe.
