Taos Avalanche Center will be operational for the 2019/2020 winter season. We look forward to promoting avalanche education and awareness for Northern New Mexico this season. We will be making regular updates once the snow starts falling as well as providing updates for avalanche courses during the season. If you would like to help or have any questions please feel free to contact me at email@example.com 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.
