Big thanks to Backcountry Access for sponsoring this avalanche education content. Check out the additional plethora of avalanche safety resources on their website.
The Aspen Skiing Company has a webcam pointed at Maroon Bowl, here in Colorado, where an avalanche recently took the life of well known rescue volunteer and backcountry skier John Galvin. I grabbed a frame, did some work on it, got permission to publish from the SkiCo. The mountain backdrop is Pyramid Peak (left) and Maroon Bells, where Galvin did many many missions. See our previous post regarding this.
