1. Persistent slab avalanches are the dangerous, scary and tricky avalanches for backcountry riders. A quarter of all avalanche fatalities are caused by trauma, from hitting trees and rocks on the way down. These slabs are what we consider an unmanageable avalanche problem. The only tool we have is to avoid them, by using safe travel and terrain selection to our advantage. Get educated, take an avalanche class. Thanks for watching!
