This has been a challenging season in many regards. Unfortunately, Taos Avalanche Center is shutting down. Thanks to all those that have supported and believed in providing avalanche education and awareness. Stay safe out in the mountains and if you ever want to talk about conditions feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 781-572-5631.
Throttle Decisions: Outreach Component. Throttle Decisions is a fast-paced video series from the Canadian Avalanche Center aimed at encouraging mountain sledders to become better trained in avalanche safety. Its eight short components move through the AST course, tackling topics such as terrain, companion rescue, mountain weather and how to read the avalanche bulletin.
Filmmaker Francois Desrosiers of FD Productions shot video in 2012-13 with a host of riders across BC, capturing not only some great action but also some straight-shooting commentary from avalanche experts, brand-name riders and even some avalanche survivors.
The series is anchored by CAC Forecaster Joe Lammers, a man equally at home on sled and skis.
