Hi all Wink
As of yesterday the Backcountry skiing Snoqualmie book is available again. The current website adress is "backcountryskiingsnoqualmiepass.com". YUP, that is a mouthful, so we just aquired skitoursnoqualmiepass.com and that will be a valid way to get there as well soon.

Special thanks goes to Keith Karlick from Outdoor Research who built the website and Dan Nordstrom from Outdoor Research who generously provided the photo flight. While I am thanking people, I would like to thank also my guides (especially Ben Haskell) who provided great beta over the years. Many of the suggested updates and improvements are still to come.
We are not quite done with the website, but there is already more info there than there has been in the original book. I added almost 50 aerial photos that ought to get your imagination going. The current website adress is "backcountryskiingsnoqualmiepass.com". YUP, that is a mouthful, so we just aquired skitoursnoqualmiepass.com and that will be a valid way to get there as well soon.
Over the course of the last few years quite a few new areas have explored and additions to existing routes will be published over the course of the next few months. All the updates will be available for downloading as well.
See you in the mountains.

Martin Volken's Hazard Evaluator scale!
« Reply #3 on: 12/22/13, 05:11 PM »

The Hazard Evaluator;
Hazard Evaluation in the context of skiing is a big topic and I have put a lot of thought into this.
Have a read.

High consequence decision-making is difficult. If time pressures are added to the process, life can become stressful very fast.
I am a mountain guide and guiding service owner and take a lot responsibility over other peoplesí lives. My particular profession involves risk to live and limb. The decision-making process lacks the comforting redundancies of a more procedural risk management process. Considering that there is always a residual risk in high consequence decision-making, the long-range odds are not stacked favorably for a professional mountain guide. I also had to come to terms with the fact that the average human does not process information optimally in a high stress situation.
The most tangible differentiator in my versus other professionís risk management decision making schemes is that they often happen on a seemingly intuitive level, since the environment and general nature of the job do not lend themselves to procedural decision making. The situations often lack redundant safety measures. The time and place when procedural decision making fails and you have to make a lonely judgment call. This is when the following scale becomes interesting.....

In stock now: the BD Jetforce Airbag. This is an exciting and interesting new technology from BD, and we're sure you folks here on TAY are curious to see it in person. Stop by the shop to test fire the Jetforce, or try out one of our other demo bags from BCA, Mammut, or Ortovox.
