Backcountry Recreation and COVID-19
- We will continue to post snowpack observations and biweekly avalanche advisories until further notice.
- COAC is discouraging backcountry skiing and recreation in an effort to protect our communities and to avoid additional strain on our limited rescue and healthcare resources.
- If you do choose to head out in the backcountry please consider that any backcountry rescue will tax resources that are needed to manage the impacts of COVID-19. Slow down, be conservative, and consider avoiding avalanche terrain. Read this message from an ER physician for tips on traveling in the backcountry right now.
- Please continue to follow CDC guidelines and state executive orders
