The snow is here! Finally! We’ve got new terrain opening almost everyday and more snow on the way! The Silver Queen is opening on Wednesday next week! In honor of all the awesome snow and the Avalanche Awareness nights we’ve been having we thought we would share some quick tips and a sweet video!
Avalanche safety is a big deal and being the “smart one” on the mountain is always the best idea. Make sure you have the right gear and you’ve checked the avalanche forecast before making plans. This video takes a minute, but it’s one of the best videos we have seen on avalanche safety. So take a few minutes and check it out, it’s worth your time!

For this week’s staff bio, we chatted it up with the man in charge in our repair shop:
