Research Project on Understanding Travel Behavior in Avalanche Terrain Needs You

Scientists from the Snow and Avalanche Lab at Montana State University are seeking more participants for their project examining decision making and travel in avalanche terrain.
Their project aims to collect GPS location information (from your smartphone) and survey responses from backcountry skiers and riders to better understand what types of terrain are used, and how decisions are made. Their focus is on backcountry skiers and riders of all abilities and experience. You need not be an expert backcountry skier to participate in this research.

More information: If you want to participate, or learn more about their project aims, research questions and approaches, please visit their web page:
