Avalanche Decision Making Survey
CAA needs our feedback, here's the scoop... The Canadian Avalanche Centre, in conjunction with Simon Fraser University, is seeking survey participants for a study on out-of-bounds avalanche decision making. Findings from the study will be used to develop tools for communicating avalanche risk and assisting out-of-bounds decisions making.
The study includes an online survey with questions about experience and background, typical skiing/riding partners, perceptions of avalanches and ski patrol and an interactive ‘pick a run’ exercise.
All participants will be entered in a prize draw for:
- One Ortovox S1 avalanche transceivers
- Two Black Diamond AvaLung backpacks
At the conclusion of the study interested participants will be emailed a personal analysis sheet that includes a comparison of your avalanche hazard consideration to other study participants.
The survey can be found at: http://www.outbounds.rem.sfu.ca
