Product Description
A Sense of Snow is brief introduction to avalanche awareness and safety in the backcountry. It features well know athletes AJ Cargill, Travis Rice, and Stephen Koch. Through interviews with avalanche professionals such as Rod Newcomb and Ron Matous, search and rescue team members, and experienced back country users, A Sense of Snow provides basic advice on avalanche avoidance, snow pack evaluation and safe travel practices in avalanche prone terrain. It is addressed to skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers and snowmobilers. A Sense of Snow has been used in avalanche awareness education in Jackson Hole Wyoming where Open Range Films is located. For many years, it was broadcast on local cable TV in Jackson and it is used by avalanche professionals in avalanche education classes. A Sense of Snow screened at the 2006 International Snow Sciences Workshop in Telluride, Colorado. Sava Malachowski and Valerie Schramm produced it as a preventive measure in response to a series of tragic avalanche accidents in northwest Wyoming between 2000 and 2004 that claimed 10 lives. A Sense of Snow does not serve as a replacement for a certified avalanche course but rather encourages people to get educated before venturing into the back country.
