This three-year project was launched in 2004 by the Canadian Avalanche Association in response
to the tragic avalanche accidents during the winter of 2003. The focus of the
project was to examine the decision-making process in avalanche terrain and to develop and appropriate risk communication tools. The outcome of the project, the Avaluator, is a practical, science-based decision framework for amateur
recreationists when planning for or traveling in avalanche terrain. Click here to learn more about the Avaluator.
Avisualanche Consulting was responsible for the overall project management and was also closely involved in various related research projects.
