Considerable hazard rating from Avalanche Bulletin

The Vancouver Island Avalanche Bulletin has listed some considerable hazard ratings.

Lead forecaster Jan Neuspiel says this means that both natural and skier-triggered avalanches are a possibility in the back-country.

Neuspiel says getting avalanche education is key.

Neuspiel notes you can take an Avalanche Skills Training-One course delivered by Alpine Guides on the Island in order to prepare yourself for a back-country trip.

Neuspiel says if you are involved in an avalanche in the back-country – it’s important to be prepared and have an escape plan.

He says it takes less than 20 minutes to save a life in an avalanche situation.
