Ski Run Characterization

The Avalanche Research Program at Simon Fraser University and HeliCat Canada are conducting a study to better understand how guides in mechanized skiing perceive the hazard characteristics, operational benefits and barriers to use of ski runs.

The objective of this research is to develop a comprehensive framework and terminology for describing skiing terrain in a more meaningful way. The results of this study will provide critical information for improving communication round terrain and understanding terrain choices.
