I haven’t ventured out into the backcountry yet this season for two reasons. #1 I have no one to go with. #2 I don’t have my beacon yet, the most important backcountry piece of equipment I still need to purchase. Even still with how conditions are, I don’t feel prepared to go out yet until those two reasons are solved.
So in light of all the recent avalanche activity I just want people to be safe this season. Educate yourself, carry the right equipment, go with people who know the terrain and are educated as well, watch the snowpack and avalanche center reports for your location.
