Avalanche Information

Where do you folks get your backcountry information to help plan trips into the backcountry?

Admittedly I am not savvy in the fine aspects of winter backcountry travel, but I have basic understands of the hazards involved, I am just looking to expand my available pool of knowledge.

Without a doubt the Colorado Avalanche Information Center is my go to.

They do specific avalanche forecasts for different zones of the state, updated every morning. They also offer some high quality courses and online learning materials.

Educate yourself, and travel with experienced partners until you have your own working knowledge of avalanche hazard avoidance.

Have fun out there, hope that helps.
