Backcountry Snow and Safety Reports

Throughout the snow season, we will be calling local avalanche experts to learn what they are observing and what backcountry users should look for when venturing into the hills and posting the recording as the Backcountry Snow and Safety Report. The report is produced by the Teton Backcountry Alliance in cooperation with the Bridger-Teton Avalanche Center, Teton Search and Rescue, and KHOL radio.
