In North America, avalanches kill an average of 42 people and injure many more each year. Many avalanche victims don't know they are in avalanche danger and are unprepared to deal with an avalanche. This doesn't have to happen - the danger signs are usually obvious to those who know what to look for. Just as those living along coastlines learn about the dangers of rip currents and shore breaks at an early age, those living, working, and recreating in snowy mountains need to learn about avalanches. What you learn can save lives.
