Working What Works

It is an interesting tell of my age that the latest backcountry zones I have been scouting are relatively low angle, low elevation, and heavily gladed areas. However, with any amount of understanding of avalanche terrain and characteristics, it makes more sense. As I slowly age and morph into a crustier and more diligent backcountry traveler, and I spend more and more days alone in the woods, I have found myself seeking out and exploring more terrain that can be skied safely on even the highest of avalanche danger days.
