We’ve teamed up with Altus Mountain Guides to create the online evoAcademy Backcountry Essentials Course just for our customers. The full course consists of more than 2 hours of video lessons covering core backcountry skills. Lessons are available on demand, so you’ll be able to boost your backcountry know-how on your own schedule.  In this chapter, we cover the science behind the nature and formation of avalanches. It’s essential information for anyone looking to further their avalanche training as well as develop an understanding of how and why avalanches happen. In addition, we’ll help you understand the avalanche bulletin. We cover common terminology and the role weather plays in avalanche forecasting.


To get full access, buy any winter gear at evo through Monday, March 1, 2021. We’ll then email you a unique coupon code that’ll give you two months of free access to the course. Or enjoy these free previews.
