    Montana State University's Snow and Avalanche Lab is launching a new research program called Tracks that is aimed at understanding the decision making process of skiers and riders out in backcountry terrain. The research will look at the human factor involved when individuals or groups decide to go into terrain where there is a high risk for avalanche. To participate in the Tracks program, please visit www.montana.edu/snowscience/tracks. To learn more about MSU's snow science programs, see the Spring 2015 issue of Montana State University's Mountains and Minds magazine coming in April.

      Let it snow! Let is snow! Let it snow! We all dream of a white Christmas, but it rarely happens here in Houston. What are the chances of it snowing again this year? And why are we so fascinated by those tiny white crystals? Join Chief Meteorologist Gene Norman in the KHOU-TV Weather Center as he explains the science and phenomena behind snow. Discover why snow is white, and whether every snowflake really is unique. Then, visit the Gene Norman Weather Center at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, a one-of-a-kind interactive exhibit, where kids and parents can conduct a live weather forecast in precisely the same manner as Norman does it on the local news each evening.
