Show Us How You Know the Snow
Cross-Border Collaboration Aims at Avalanche Safety for Resort Riders

Feb 27, 2014: A unique partnership between US and Canadian avalanche safety organizations is issuing a challenge to skiers and snowboarders: Make a 4-minute video that shows the proper preparation for riding beyond resort boundaries and submit it between now and Mar 21, the last day of winter.

Show us what happens before you hit your favorite powder stash, using your camera to tell the story about how you and your crew get ready to explore beyond the resort boundary and you’ve got a great chance to win some amazing prizes.
The videos will be posted on Vimeo and promoted by GoPro and other partners. The final winner will be determined by a combination of most views and an expert panel. Prizes include:
• A two-day trip for two at Monashee Powder Snowcats in the snowbelt of BC’s interior
• Two-day Gold Passes to any resort in the United States
• A BCA Float 22 pack
• Gear from backcountry.com
The winning videos will be announced on March 25. Our goal is to simplify what’s involved in avalanche terrain preparation. To keep the momentum going, the project will continue through next season with expert editing help from Sherpas Cinema. A final highlight reel will be created with the best video submissions and broadcast at ski events and major retailers starting in November, 2014.
The organizations involved in this project:
• American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education // http://www.avtraining.org
• Canadian Avalanche Centre // http://www.avalanche.ca
• Colorado Avalanche Information Center //http://www.avalanche.state.co.us
• Nothwest Avalanche Center //http://www.nwac.us

This is all part of the Project Zero initiative and is a great place to start imo.
