We need your input!

Seems like an odd time for messages about avalanches and snow, but many of our organizations are hard at work improving programs and resources.

Hopefully we can draw some of you away from the hot sun to fill in a few details for the upcoming book: "Avalanche Accidents in Canada Volume 5".

Dr Bruce Jamieson and his team are summarizing a decade worth of reports. This book series is heavily used as a teaching and research resource for avalanche professionals and students world-wide.

Unfortunately some of the archived accident reports are missing some useful details. Bruce is hopeful that Zac's contacts might be able to fill in some of the blanks.

Help is needed from snowmobilers that may be familiar with Canadian avalanche accidents that took place from 1995 - 2007.

Please pass this around to as many riders as possible as the printing deadline is coming right up!

Dr J's staff are highly professional and compassionate members of the avalanche community that recognize the sensitive nature of this work. The intent of this publication is to pass along the facts in an effort to highlight the recurring patterns of weather, snowpack, and human factors that often contribute to close calls and tragic loses.

Your experiences & knowledge could save a life!
Please take the time to share!

Got the e-mail from Lori the other day. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with these particular incidents, but I do encourage those who do to go ahead and help out.
I know I'll be interested in reading it when it's all done.
