While an important discussion, please retain the COAC observation board for avalanche and snowpack observation reporting.

The morale of the story is as backcountry users we should be aware of our surroundings and potential mechanisms that may influence exposure. It should be no surprise to any user in our most popular areas that one may encounter persons pretty much anywhere and on all sorts of travel mechanisms.
With that, all backcountry users are responsible for doing their best to insure not exposing persons below you as well as understanding what may be above you when managing terrain and travel routes.
Posted here is the USFS map surrounding motorized and non-motorized areas on Tumalo. A line on a map is sometimes difficult to discern when on the ground so the obvious is all riders should be aware of potential interactions with all riders and consider each other’s safety as we all enjoy our backcountry terrain.
