" It doesn’t matter if you have made thousands of good calls – all it takes is one bad call and that is one too many. Some days the mountains are screaming GET OUT OF HERE and some days they are saying come on in – it’s time to party." - Jeremy Jones

Do you know when to back off and when it’s good to go? The Know Before You Go avalanche avoidance program will get you started down the path of learning the language of the mountains and becoming a better and back country traveller.

Avalanche NZ is stoked to be able to bring you this great production in conjunction with our Nth American colleagues. A special thanks to Trent Meisenheimer and his team for putting together this fantastic resource.
