This presentation by AIARE Technical Director Steve Conger will take a real-world dive into an avalanche education provider being an avalanche operation where industry best practices are applied. It describes a practical tool to support an avalanche instructor’s field trip terrain selection. The tool is an education-specific extension to the strategic mindset.

In the common snow avalanche risk management process, an initial step is establishing the context which includes determining the scope and situation. Scope describes the organizational objectives and risk criteria (in our lexicon, the operational risk band). Situation is the 3-way intersection of the element(s) at risk, scale, and the hypothetical sequence of events where exposure to the avalanche hazard occurs.

The mindset extensions capture four easily recognizable situations and provide an associated strategy for terrain selection.

Limited to 40 participants.
