Unfortunately, the Taos Avalanche Center will be shutting down for the season. Road access has been closed to the main trailhead in the area. Out of respect to the Village of Taos Ski Valley and their wishes during this time we have decided to shut down, as we don't have access to make observations to produce forecasts. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 781-572-5631. Stay safe, take care of yourself and others.
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.
