New Yorker article on avys

Post by Bob »

I came across this well-written article on avalanches in the New Yorker. A great read, highly recommended for awareness.
https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020 ... -avalanche

This passage reminded me of an observation I had during my many years in wildfire:
“Sometimes you need accidents,” Margreth said. Atwater, in his book, suggests that “people need a good scare not less than every three years. Otherwise they begin to think that avalanche hazard is a figment of someone’s imagination.”
