The Shape of Things to Come

Think you can figure things out by licking your finger and holding it up in the wind? Think again. In a digital age, backcountry information comes from many different sources.

Danger Ratings

Forecasts

Written by professionals, these are still the cornerstone of any pre-planning. Often spanning whole mountain ranges or states, these forecasts give a great overview of what to expect out there.

Observations

Field reports written by people on the ground. Anyone could (and should) submit an observation. See something, share it!

Threads

Got a question, ask it. Got an answer, shout it out! An open, honest discussion forum is essential for sharing vital information about current conditions.

Trend

Paying attention to past conditions and expected future events can help you make smarter decisions.

Same Great Forecasts, Repurposed

This isn't reinventing the wheel. Avalanche forecasts are sacred, and still form an integral part of backcountry planning. Avalog takes the same forecasts you already know and love, and makes them as accessible and easy to read as possible.
