Turns All Year Trip Reports Disclaimer:
Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, walking, and all other methods of travel or recreation on snow are dangerous and a potential hazard to personal safety. Each person who ventures onto snow is responsible for their own safety. Many snow travellers find that education, information, and experience can increase their safety when they are on snow. The trip reports and replies posted on Turns All Year Trip Reports may appear to offer information about the safety of travelling or recreating on snow, but it is critical to remember that posts on this web site are not evaluated or edited for accuracy and represent the subjective experience of the author.
Individuals may have widely differing perceptions, for a given location, date, and time, of the safety of travelling or recreating on snow, of avalanche hazards, and of skiing or snowboarding conditions. The hazards and conditions reported in a trip report or reply can change rapidly. In addition, individuals can differ greatly in both their perception of objective hazards and their acceptance of the risk to personal safety of these hazards.
