Unfortunately Mother Nature is unpredictable, a master in blindsiding her victims. Even the most cautious backcountry skiers run the risk of triggering an avalanche with just one misstep. The natural dangers of the backcountry make avalanche control a hazardous yet exciting job. You can take all of the necessary safety precautions to avoid disaster and still fall victim to Mother Nature’s wrath.
