Schweitzer ski patrol is encouraging and offering weekly free "Transceiver Sundays" (clock tower at 10:00 a.m.) to all interested public with two permanent practice areas and one more difficult challenge that is on a less regular basis. All they ask is that the public covers up their tracks and if practicing digging techniques, please replace your divot. This is a great way to keep on your A game for those venturing out of bounds.
Throttle Decisions: Outreach Component. Throttle Decisions is a fast-paced video series from the Canadian Avalanche Center aimed at encouraging mountain sledders to become better trained in avalanche safety. Its eight short components move through the AST course, tackling topics such as terrain, companion rescue, mountain weather and how to read the avalanche bulletin.
Filmmaker Francois Desrosiers of FD Productions shot video in 2012-13 with a host of riders across BC, capturing not only some great action but also some straight-shooting commentary from avalanche experts, brand-name riders and even some avalanche survivors.
The series is anchored by CAC Forecaster Joe Lammers, a man equally at home on sled and skis.
