Plot of NWAC accident reports by month
« on: 04/01/15, 08:00 PM »

With the return of cool wet weather, my thoughts turned back toward avalanches. I got to wondering about relative accident rates between late winter and early spring. As a Snoqualmie skier, it feels like the first weeks of April are a magnet for accidents. So, I got to plotting. I know NWAC has shown similar plots at NSAW/NSAS, but I didn't find them quickly.

My biggest surprise - March, April, and May have each taken equal numbers of our friends from us.

Thank you, everyone who's worked with or supported NWAC, for building and maintaining such a valuable resource.

Ski gently into Spring; we're all powder-starved, and this is an atypical year.

Not a big surprise to me at all.
